Airport Capacity

There appears little common ground in the debate over whether to build a civilian passenger-cargo airport at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station once the military leaves by 1999. An unscientific survey by The Times shows deep divisions and resentment over the issue among many Orange County residents. There should be some type of international airport there, but there should be some restrictions so there's not 24-hour flights to disturb the people down there. But I do think the county definitely does need more airport capacity than it currently has. David Johnson 40 Yorba Linda These people that don't want an airport out there, they've been living with this noise from the planes for years, and 15 years ago there weren't very many houses out in that area.

I assume columnist James Flanigan lives nowhere near an airport or else he would not be so gung-ho on airport expansion ("High Time for Airports," Feb. 14). He is absolutely right when he says airports arouse opposition from all sorts of people. Why? They are unbearably noisy, they create pollution, things drop from planes, there is a constant chance of accident. Building more and more--whether it be airports or highways--encourages more usage and pretty soon we are right back where we started--never enough room on the freeways--never enough airport capacity.

Steven P. Erie's concern ("Why Southern California May Be Unprepared for Its Destiny," Opinion, Jan. 28) is right on target and is shared by many of the region's residents and business leaders. He is right again in suggesting that one or more of the area's military air bases set to be closed would be an ideal solution to our most pressing problem of not having sufficient international and cargo airport capacity to handle the anticipated market growth. Putting our city or county planners in charge of evaluating and developing this idea would take years to reach a decision.

Recent information given to the community, in my opinion, unduly alarmed an uninformed public. The Burbank Airport is in no danger of closing! On the contrary, the Federal Aviation Administration (one of the culprits in the drama) works tirelessly on behalf of the airlines and the health of the aviation transportation system. It is unheard of for them to put any airport out of business. Instead, they make many demands on airports around the country to expand and utilize their facilities to the utmost.
