Am having trouble getting any Bribie Island address to work. Is there a major impact?

For those having trouble, here’s departure tracks for RWY01L.

Shouldn't be too bad - the map says that planes should be over 4km (ascending towards 6km) above ground level by the time it gets to Bribie. I live on the southside (Parkinson) under the existing flight path and based on that map planes should be ~1.4km above ground where I am. I can barely hear the planes even when I am outside.

North of the settled areas of Bribie. Flight path runs over Ningi, Beachmere, Burpengary, but I doubt if it would be an issue; fairly high by then.

Looks like seats are starting at $295 in Y on VA781 and J is sold out.

I bet BNE didn't expect to be this quiet at the opening of its new runway!

Generous taxi. Be interesting to see how many more flights use the new runway with so few flights running.
