As I understand out city ordnances. There are only a few flights approved for landing and/or taking off after 2300 hrs due to two neighborhoods being very close to the runway. This is not an international airport. The code for it is KMGW.
I have noticed lately some single engine aircraft and even larger dual prop’s such as some Airforce/ANG C-23 Sherpa’s landing with what sounds like they have their engines cut off. Now, keep in mind these “silent” landings have been during the day when no sound restrictions are present.
What would make the landing of some aircraft want to cut off the engines shortly before landing?
Im sure that 5-10% of the incoming flights aren’t having that much trouble!
