Residents frustrated with new Elbow Lake seaplane runway

ELBOW LAKE, Minn. (KBRF) - What used to be a quiet, serene lake with abundant wildlife on the outskirts of Elbow Lake, has turned very noisy and loud according to Flekkefjord Lake residents.

The Elbow Lake Municipal Airport has become an FAA and State Of Minnesota Certified Seaplane Runway and can only operate from 7 a.m. until sunset.

Property owners have approached the Elbow Lake City Council recently to see if any resolution was possible.

Maggie Aul, one of the homeowners, says that even with the limited hours, the noise is deafening sometimes.

Airport officials have warned pilots not to ‘warm up’ their planes in the future. They have also advised residents to try to capture the identification numbers of the offending planes so they can pinpoint the source of the some of the issues.

Unfortunately there are a lot more waterfront Non-Flying home owners than waterfront home owners with seaplanes.

I'm truly looking forward to NIMBY attacks on AMAZON, WALMART, WALGREENS and other department stores pushing for the delivery drones. Most NIMBY's are hypochondriacs and can't go a half day without their meds.


Amazon’s vision for the future: delivery drone beehives in every city

Glad I will not be around to see that fully implemented nor 100% self drive cars.

I really wish just once a very polished lawyer would head down to watch the activity on a nimby infested lake & tell the judge,or council that they would have no problem with the ban providing no other activity were permitted on said lake either;or a very large prejudicial lawsuit would be filed against the complainants.
