Data pages 1 and 2 above show 85 dBa and 75 dBa (high noise contours) for JetBlue's A320-232 Airbus takeoffs from LB Airport's main diagonal runway. It's called runway "30" for takeoffs over Bixby Knolls/Cal Heights (in the direction of 300 degrees) and is called runway "12" when weather conditions trigger takeoffs over Los Altos (in the direction of 120 degrees).
Data pages 3 and 4 compare high noise contours for Jet Blue's Airbus to a Boeing 727 (with "hush kit") for takeoffs on runway 30 (toward Bixby Knolls/Cal Hts) and runway 12 (toward Los Altos), showing each plane's 85 dBa and 75 dBa contours.
Data pages 5 and 6 compare high noise contours for Jet Blue's Airbus to a Boeing 727-200 for takeoffs on runway 30 (toward Bixby Knolls/Cal Hts) and runway 12 (toward Los Altos), showing each plane's 85 dBa and 75 dBa contours.
Data pages 7 and 8 show noise duration charts for JetBlue's Airbus, indicating noise on take off plotted against reception time.
