A poster on the wall of an airport in Mississippi has become a hit with pilots around the world due the sarcastic way it has dealt with the subject of noise complaints from neighbours.
"Due to recent complaints to the FAA from homeowners in the highlighted areas, we ask that you please be mindful of altitude when approaching Runway 36," the poster at Rabren Aviation begins.
"They can't help they bought a house... next to an airport... directly at the end of the runway... and felt it necessary to report to the FAA that there were, shockingly, airplanes landing at the airport."
The poster was shared on Reddit and instantly attracted dozens of comments from pilots sympathising with the airport's situation.
"Planes? At an airport? Shocking!" one comment said, while another questioned how the residents had somehow not realised when moving to the area that the airport would bring with it the noise of aircraft.
"How dare they. There wasn't an airplane above my house when I bought it! I bet they hid them all just to trick me into buying!"
Jared Rabren, the airport company owner, confirmed the poster was real and told Newshub sometimes the best way to address a situation is with humour.
"I know it's a bit tongue-in-cheek, but the local pilots all got a good laugh out of it! My hope was if I made them laugh, they'd be more likely to remember the next time they flew over the neighbourhood," he said.
"The airport has been there far longer than any of the neighbourhoods that surround it, so it's easy to get ruffled when they call, but I've found diffusing the situation with humour tends to make the whole thing easier to swallow."
Mississippi's noise complaint situation appears to be no different to similar locations in Auckland, with residents complaining about the noise from something that has existed well before they purchased their property - think Eden Park, Western Springs and of course, Auckland International Airport.
While most responses to the poster online have been just as tongue-in-cheek as it was, others were a bit more straightforward and to the point.
"Just dump fuel," one response said.
