The results are reported of measurements performed with a Bruel and Kjaer Sound Level Meter 2204 and a Nagra 4.2L Tape recorder, and a General Radio 1925 Real-Time 1/3rd Octave Analyzer in the residential communities adjacent to the Ben Gurion International Airport in Israel. The noise measurements were confined to only the take-off operations of aircraft. The residential constructions in the communities are 3-4 apartment buildings. The ground sideline distance of these buildings to the flight path was approximately 300 m. The measurement site was located approximately 4.5 km from the brake release point on the runway. Figures are presented which illustrate the location of the microphones. The results of noise measurements averaged as per each type of aircraft and then for all types of aircraft are tabulated.
