The tires of a twin-engine Cessna that crashed at Santa Monica Airport last month were inflated and showed no signs of unusual wear, federal investigators have determined, debunking an early theory on what may have caused the plane to veer off the runway and into a hangar. There was also no debris on the runway, and the Federal Aviation Administration control tower reported that the pilot “did not express over the radio any problems prior to or during the landing,” according to a preliminary report on the Sept.

What was on the runway in the two-plus weeks of spring 2014 fashion shows in Los Angeles was as varied as the venues themselves, which ranged from the entertainment complex L.A. Live downtown to the Grove, some seven miles to the west. One of the standout events was the Los Angeles Fashion Council's two days of runway shows held for the first time at the Grove. Staged in the center of the outdoor mall's park area, where the Christmas tree sits each holiday season, the event showcased eight designers.

Four major contractors that built the $250-million south runway at Los Angeles International Airport are the target of a new city lawsuit that alleges that widespread construction flaws are causing the runway to wear out prematurely. The city of Los Angeles sued R & L Brosamer, HNTB Corp., CH2M Hill Inc. and a joint venture involving Tutor-Saliba Corp. and O & G Industries Inc. The case was filed last week in Los Angeles County Superior Court in Torrance. The lawsuit claims there are concrete flaws and substandard construction throughout the 13,000-foot runway that opened in April 2007.

A $250-million runway at Los Angeles International Airport, rebuilt six years ago, is riddled with construction defects, including cracks, exposed steel reinforcing bars and deteriorating concrete, according to city officials. The mounting problems, including the runway's failure to meet Federal Aviation Administration construction standards, could disrupt future flight operations at the nation's third-busiest airport, according to a city lawsuit filed against companies responsible for the work.

Although he was born in Southern Italy, Salvatore Ferragamo owes a lot to Southern California. He came to Los Angeles in 1923 as a young man in his 20s, first designing shoes for films such as "The Ten Commandments," then opening the Hollywood Boot Shop at Hollywood Boulevard and Las Palmas. There, he built the foundation for today's global luxury brand by becoming cobbler to the stars. Sophia Loren, Marilyn Monroe, Joan Crawford, Gloria Swanson and Audrey Hepburn were clients. He even studied anatomy at the University of Southern California to learn how to make his shoes more comfortable, before returning to Italy in 1927 and settling in Florence, where he focused on developing visionary designs such as the cage and the wedge heels.

Group therapy session? Wake-up call? Just a darn good show? Or maybe all three. But one thing is for sure, nobody will soon forget Rick Owens' spring 2014 runway show. The California-raised, Paris-based designer recruited step dancers from college sororities all over the U.S., including Maryland, Washington, D.C., and the Los Angeles area to come to Paris and perform. The lights came up, and there they came, descending the staircases at the top of the runway, dancing, clapping and stomping, all body types and sizes.

County planning officials recommended Wednesday that operators of Los Angeles International Airport give more consideration to opponents of a $652-million runway move that business leaders say is essential for handling future growth in travel and cargo. The Airport Land Use Commission, which oversees aviation-related projects in the region, however, rejected a request by runway opponents to issue an order requiring the Los Angeles City Council to reconsider its approval of an entire $4.75-billion package of LAX improvements.
