Safety Concerns Take Off At Burbank Airport
"A draft report from the Federal Aviation Administration has bared the long-standing safety issue of Bob Hope Airport's passenger terminal and its proximity to the runway," reports the Glendale News Press. In 1986, the FAA prohibited planes from taking off to the east because of a belief that the terminal was too close to the runway.
However recent safety concerns have brought "the proximity issue," back to the forefront again following an incident in April when two planes "flew dangerously close to each other above the airfield," says the Glendale News Press.
The new study is reportedly unrelated to that near crash, however, which was deemed by the FAA to be an error by air traffic control.. An airport spokesman said the inquiry about runway safety stemmed from concerns by FAA inspectors who were were on site during the the probe of the April incident.
