The FAA recently altered the departure headings for flights out of Philadelphia, and a pair of home owners grew frustrated when calls the FAA's noise complaint lines yielded only messages that their complaint voice mail box was full. Apparently the new headings bring the outbound planes directly over their residence, and the noise is interrupting their daily (and nightly) lives. They posted a very pointed message on their rooftop in 7' tall letters saying "[intercourse] U FAA" and apparently some pilots have noticed. The FAA may not give a rip, but they at least can't say they haven't been heard, now their story is on msn.com.

Ha, ha, bully for them for not succumbing to impotent rage.

I've been tempted lately to do some Rushmore-sized expressions myself. MY cliff - I can do as I darn well please with it.

On the other side of the coin, I've been so tempted to do "USAF#1" for our boys who do those fabulous low fly-overs.

That would greatly suck, since it affects their property values so much.
