Save Milton Skies from Air Traffic and PlanesSave Milton Skies from Air Traffic and Planes
Share the Scene:

Massport, FAA sends up 500 low flying planes over the same schools, parks and homes up to 20 hours per day, abuse has substantially increased over the last six months

Milton residents and politicians are seeking a fair share of plane traffic. The town has over twice its share of arrivals and low flying jets from two concentrated paths.  In the last 12 months (8/15-7/16) nearly 50,000 plane arrivals flying and over 8,000 departures flew over Milton. The majority of low flying planes flew over the same neighborhoods, schools and parks. Many days, residents experience up to 20 hours (from 5 a.m. until well after midnight) of low, roaring planes flying at 1,700 feet altitude which has led to numerous, negative health consequences.

Toxic plane emissions that fly under 2,000 feet like in Milton fall directly on families that impacts air quality, health and use of property.
