Aeroplanes Over My House

Aeroplanes Over My House

My house is below the flight path of planes taking off and landing in the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (otherwise commonly known as the Subang Airport).

It’s a great place for to spot planes and these are just some of the varied aeroplanes observed at various times over my house.

It is surprising how silent the new commercial superjets are. The noisiest ones are the large military types (meant to give the “shock and awe” effect?), the commercial cargo planes (couldn’t care less?), and of course the older generation commercial jets (just simply plain old). Of the turboprop aircrafts (Firefly and Malindo), some are quite silent but some are fairly noisy, I wonder why.

But the new superjets are so silent, it’s eery.
