_Airport Noise NIMBYism: An Empirical Investigation_
'Generally, a very small number of people account for a disproportionately high share of the total number
of noise complaints. In 2015, for example, 6,852 of the 8,760 complaints submitted to Ronald Reagan
Washington National Airport originated from one residence in the affluent Foxhall neighborhood of
northwest Washington, DC. The residents of that particular house called Reagan National to express irritation about aircraft noise an average of almost 19 times per day during 2015.'

Somebody needs help.
