FLORAL PARK - Several Nassau County communities are fed up with low-flying air traffic in their neighborhood and say the government is to blame for their headaches.
Longtime Floral Park resident Cathy McCabe says the airplanes landing at John F. Kennedy International Airport fly right above her house, rattling her nerves every time.Village Mayor Thomas Tweedy says the deafening sound of an approaching plane is becoming more frequent in Floral Park as more flights land on Runway 22L.
According to the Port Authority, in just the past six months, the flights landing on that runway have nearly doubled.
Tweedy is part of the Town Village Aircraft Safety Noise Abatement Committee, also known as TAVASNAC. The group representing 15 communities says it is pushing for the airport to rotate runways as much as possible, hoping it will cut down on noise complaints from residents.
