Get ready to rumble: Noise control advocates gain seats on BWI advisory commission

August 18, 2023

For a moment, 29,000 pounds of thrust from a Southwest 737 flying overhead was alive in my chest. Standing on the lot of a Glen Burnie car dealership, I had to tell the salesman to pause his pitch until the jetliner, its noise and the deep, body rumble I was feeling, had passed. This is what it’s like some days for roughly 140,000 people in Howard and Anne Arundel counties living directly under the flight paths of Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Airplane noise can be an engine scream high in the sky or the distant roar of a waterfall down the street.
