Airport noise ignites tempers, sparks obscene sign on homeowners’ roof

Before the FAA changed Philadelphia’s flight plan a month ago, Michael Hall and his girlfriend, Michaelene Buddy had no issues sleeping. Their home was quiet. Then came the flight pattern change, and with it the constant roaring of commercial jets overhead.

Hall and Buddy have tried contacting the FAA’s noise disturbance hotline, but claim that the voice mailbox is always full. So the duo took matters into their own hands: in 7-foot letters the couple spelled out “FU_K U FAA” on their roof — in plain sight of any jet flying overhead.

The sign might not spark any changes, but I imagine it felt good for the two to say what they wanted so say and know that someone will hear (or see) it.
