THUMB AWARD FLIGHT PLANS MAKE IRVING AIRSICK

By  |

Thumbs Down to the Federal Aviation Administration for its cavalier treatment of Irving residents outraged over an experiment at the Dallas/Fort Worth Regional Airport that places thousands of Irving homes directly under jet flight paths. The fact that most of these homes were built before the airport opened and that a former FAA official testified in federal court that the FAA had promised not to fly over the affected areas doesn’t seem to bother the current FAA administration at the airport. Even more irritating to the Irving residents is that the experiment was designed specifically to protect the homeowners in Las Colinas, an exclusive residential community developed after the airport opened.
