The city of Ontario wants to buy back the international airport it sold to Los Angeles in 1967, saying the current owner has not moved fast enough to make improvements necessary to cope with the facility's explosive growth. Ontario Mayor Howard Snider, who broached the idea at a Los Angeles Airport Commission meeting Wednesday, has threatened to halt local funding for certain airport-related projects if the transfer of ownership is not approved.
