Donald Trump Sues Palm Beach Airport Because It's Just Too Noisy

MIAMI (CBS/AP) Donald Trump has something to say to his neighbors over at Palm Beach International Airport.

You're LOUD!!!!!!

And in this case, he doesn't like it.

The real-estate magnate turned tv-tycoon is suing the airport and the county of Palm Beach in a decades-old disagreement over noise control at the Florida flight hub, which is near his ritzy Mar-a-Lago home.

The lawsuit also names the airport's director, Bruce Pelly.

The suit seeks to block the planned expansion of the airport, and to prevent flights over Trump's home (did we mention it's ritzy?).

Trump was part of a group that founded the Good Neighbor Council for Aircraft Noise Control, which has fought to keep noisy planes away from the area.

Can't he just tell the airport director he's fired?
