Don’t worry about the noise, what if they crash?

February 22, 2007


According to the SMH, Sydney residents are upset by counter-terrorism training exercises being undertaken around the Sydney CBD by Army Black Hawks…due to the noise of the helicopters.

Given the safety record of these birds, if I was a resident I’d be far more concerned about the odds of them crashing and killing people on the ground than I would be concerned about the noise. Sadly the odds of that occuring, given their record in service here, isn’t remote.
