Homeowners in Windsor Locks told Eyewitness News that for years, they have been plagued with the same noise from flyovers at International Bradley Airport.
Relief is coming, but not everyone is seeing it.
"Living right on the edge of the airport, that's where you hear it," said Jessica Quagliaroli.
She lives on Darien Drive, which is right in the flight path for dozens of planes making their daily arrivals and departures.
Quagliaroli said she hears the flyovers "every day" at all times of the day.
Hundreds of neighbors, along with Quagliaroli, have lived with the noise nuisance, so when they heard the federal government was going to pitch in a helping hand by replacing doors and windows with sound-minimizing ones, they were looking forward to relief.
"It would definitely help out in the neighborhood," Quagliaroli said. "It would probably bring house values up around here."
According to a map provided by federal officials, Darien Drive was split into two sections.
One section is receiving assistance because the area that they live in is a zone where air traffic routinely reaches 65 decibels.
However, Quagliaroli is on the fringe of that section and she will receive no federal funding.
"We all hear the same that the other half of the street hear," she said. "Planes go over us just as much as everyone else."
Eyewitness News contacted the Connecticut Department of Transportation, who was responsible for making the map, but they referred the station to officials with Bradley Airport.
At this time, officials at Bradley Airport had no comment. However, a meeting is planned for Wednesday night to discuss the issue.
The Federal Aviation Administration, who organized the program, said during a sound test, they created a 100-foot buffer, which just happens to be a few feet short of Quagliaroli's home.
"It's not fair when they're making that decision and they don't live here," she said.
There is a solution for neighbors on the fringe - they'll need to make an appeal directly to the FAA.
The good news is that some on this street already did and have been added to the list of qualifying homes
