    Has anybody else who lives in Medford within a half mile or so on either side of 93 noticed how much lower the jets in and out of Logan are flying in the last couple of years?

    YES, ABSOLUTELY!! It is constant and never-ending. I am at my wit’s end. I have complained to Massport countless times and I get a canned response back, telling me I am affected by departures on runway 33L, etc. This started to get really bad in the summer of 2013 when they changed the flight paths. Planes go over my house ever 2-3 minutes until the wee hours of the morning. Often it is quiet until about 9 PM and then it will start. The other morning, I was awakened at 3 AM!! I feel like I’m going to be forced to move eventually. I can’t take this and complaints are not taken seriously. According to the Massport “noise complaints by community” page on their site, there were over 500 complaints from Medford in August.
