Reflections on Air Travel and Transport

Issued Date: 2 Mar 2007


The soundscape of Sheffield is changing. Up to the latter part of 1997 it was very rare to hear the sound of an aircraft, at any rate in the western part of the city. The occasional police helicopter was the exception to the rule. On 10 June 1997 Sheffield City Airport was opened, since when things have begun to change, with regular aircraft noise in the morning and late evening. The sound is not intrusive, not in the western suburbs, that is; but it is certainly a new factor in the environment of Sheffield, and the noise is bound to become more frequent as the airport increases its operations.
