The London Assembly has a new report showing that there’s a lot more helicopters hovering over the city than there used to be:
The study highlights Londoners’ growing concern about helicopters adding to the “misery” of airplane noise. It wants to introduce a charge for using the capital’s airspace and calls on the government to take action to tackle helicopter noise pollution.
A congestion charge for air traffic – interesting. They also want quieter aircraft, but we reckon instead of softening them up they should be even louder. A couple of speakers slung out the sides playing The Ride of the Valkyries would be a good start – maybe letting the pilots sweep down low over Canary Wharf to scatter all the suits would be a good idea too.
And then there’s the theme from Airwolf – as heard here in Stringfellow Hawke’s battle with Redwolf:
Having that kind of thing buzzing around Centre Point in the morning would liven up the commute no end.
