Main Topic Santa Monica Airport Endangering Residents

Last week, the FAA told LAX to clean up its act and get on with expanding its northern runway. Tomorrow, residents near the Santa Monica Airport will be telling the FAA to clean up its act. They claim the agency has waived its own rules by allowing more and more bigger executive jets to takeoff and land within two-hundred and fifty feet of homes.

Guests:
Brian Bland, Member of the Airport Committee, Friends of Sunset Park Neighborhood Association
Steve Brown, Senior Vice President of Operations for the National Business Aviation Association
Robert Trimborn, Acting Director of the Santa Monica Airport
