The good news: If you were at the Garden for Game 2 on Tuesday night, the Celtics took down the Cavs for the win, 107 -94, now ahead 2-0 in the Eastern Conference finals.
The bad news: If you were not at the game, but just living in the North End / Waterfront or Downtown Boston, you no doubt heard a loud, low flying prop plane circle dozens of times during and after the game.
Adam Balsam of the North End, tracked the plane and posted the flight paths after hours of the plane flying overhead from roughly 8pm until after 11pm.
By my count, N2462G has flown over the North End 33 times as of 10:50PM tonight. @NorthEndBoston @universalhub
I guess @espn hires the company who owns it (Winged Vision Inc) to do so because the Celtics are playing nearby? pic.twitter.com/BTBRX0L6TQ

The company Winged Vision Inc, who owns the plane, was hired by the likes of ESPN to get aerial coverage during the game.
Plane noise from Logan Airport is a daily occurrence, but the tight flight path and low-flying nature spurred off several complaints. And, it wasn’t just over the North End / Waterfront. Meg McClaff added “I’m in Beacon Hill and by my count it’s a billion since 7:45…”

My windows must be more soundproof than I thought, because I didn’t hear a thing!
Didn’t hear a thing.
Was home or out in the neighborhood all day and night yesterday. Literally did not hear anything out of the ordinary. Somebody must have very sensitive ears…
I agree. I didnt hear anything in the Charlestown Navy yard but i am not noise sensitive.Where is your spirit? Glad the Celtics are doing well!
I heard it, mostly on the waterfront side since it kept going over the harbor. I thought it was a new pattern for Logan. But yeah, very annoying.
I heard it also. from 8-11. I thought it was the blimpe.
we heard it as well, very annoying especially on the week night when people are trying to rest.
I didn’t hear anything, Celtics to the Finals in five !!!
We were all tweeting about it last night. (I alerted UniversalHub, and Adam actually solved the mystery.) Every few minutes, another pass over the apartment. It wasn’t disconcerting, but just annoying when we got into the second hour of it, especially since I was watching hockey and care not a whit for basketball. 🙂
We heard it at Lewis. I prefer the stealth Blackhawks training missions. These one-off bozos are lightweights.
It was non-stop between 7-11:30 p.m. in the 02109–
It was all night and annoying!
I have lived in the North End for over 40 years -which included the Big Dig – and the noise from this annoying prop plane that circled nonstop throughout the entire Celtics game was
terrible. Was that really necessary considering the few times they did show the live aerial shots during the game they put game stats over them!
I heard it then, and I hear it now.
