As the Federal Aviation Administration weighed recommendations more than two years ago that it require more landing distance between Boeing 757 jetliners and planes following behind them, the agency found itself trying to serve two oft-competing masters: the welfare of the public it is charged to protect and the industry it was formed to promote.
