It still amazes me as to how a big craft like the 747 could even land and take off on the runway at St. Maarten.

The 747 is an iconic airplane and I love it. In fact I worked at Boeing when the first 747 took flight. However, I wish that China Air and Asiana Air would stop using the older versions. I assume they are being used as freighters, but they are extremely loud and annoying when taking off. I live over 15 miles away from the airport and they fly over our house at much less than 5,000 feet. I don't know if that's normal, but it is certainly annoying when they disrupt our sleep and regular activities. Is there any way that airlines could limited in their usage of old noisy planes?
