Perhaps pilots could practise over water

Apparently I am afflicted with the same condition as Bernice Ramsdin from the Chemainus area.

I too did not see the low-flying planes or hear their engines cutting in and out. And I guess my sheep, donkeys and poultry that spook and look up at these apparitions are not really looking up at these non-existent, noisy low flying airplanes going up and down the Cowichan River Valley.

While our valley area is not heavily populated, I would think that the open waters around us (Salish Sea) might be a much more suitable area to practice these flying manoeuvres.

It is a much less populated area, is still close by, and it would certainly help to avoid distressing the local citizens and our farms.
