A flight takes off at Ronald Reagan National Airport in Virginia.

In Maryland, complaints from people who live near airports motivated Governor Larry Hogan to ask the state’s attorney general to sue the FAA over the frequent, loud flights. Kojo gets an update on Washingtonians’ fight against airport noise with a local transportation reporter and a resident attempting to find a solution with the largest airport in Maryland.
