Chris that is the stretch we used to fish either side of the road bridge ...as you say very noisy at timesThe stretch just north of the runway was damned noisy. 25-30 years back, there was a short lived little day ticket venue out of the back of Leeming Village. It was just shy of 200m from the runway threshold piano keys at the closest point. When a Tonka took off, the noise was painful. I recall trying to hold a pole with one hand whilst trying to cover both ears with the other hand and a shoulder. However, the weirder thing was that the ponds used to ripple like the glass of water in Jurassic Park as the ground shook.
