It’s LA versus the FAA

By Kevin Tripp, KABC

Los Angeles is suing the Federal Aviation Administration. City Attorney Mike Feuer wants the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to change flight patterns near Hollywood Burbank Airport.

”We’re urging the court to return these flights to their previous patterns.”

Thousands of residents in the San Fernando Valley say air traffic over their neighborhoods has grown louder since a new system was implemented called the Southern California Metroplex flight plan. The FAA won’t comment on the lawsuit, but insists the city’s complaints about the new flight patterns are inaccurate.
