The FAA wants to expand Long Beach Airport to 40-plus flights per day to provide for the needs of the traveling public. Such compassion and sensitivity, indeed! If both the FAA and Judge Laughlin E. Waters (U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals) were truly concerned about people, they wouldn't be ramming jet noise down the neighborhood's throat. When will they look beyond the profit to be made by the carriers and realize that bigger isn't always better when it involves extreme degradation of living quality?
Thank goodness they are not in charge of Caltrans--they would be destroying neighborhoods to build more freeways!
