Vintage aircraft great, but loud

Although it is a great asset to have a museum of antique aircraft in the region I don’t see the necessity fly the inmates around so frequently. These old piston-engined monsters make a heck of a racket and disturb the peace and quiet of the skies around Mukilteo. This is particularly aggravating on a weekend when citizens simply want to sit on their patios and commune with nature. These old crates are far more intrusive than the big fan jets which take off and land with hardly a murmur.

By all means drag them out on momentous occasions, but keep them in the hangar the rest of the time.
