Schumer, Clinton see danger in curtailing hours at airport tower

The important bit:

“It’s not a huge deal. There’s 10 times as many uncontrolled airports as there are with control towers, so pilots are pretty used to flying without towers,” said Paul Tomblin of Greece, secretary of the Rochester Flying Club.

“There’s not a lot of traffic after midnight. I’ve been to Rochester in the middle of the night and the controllers sounded pretty bored,” Tomblin said.


What the on-line edition spares you from is the horror of seeing the picture they illustrated the article with. It was basically this picture from our Alaska cruise, but cropped in a bit so you couldn’t see the PFD and spray skirt. Oh, the horror.

Hmmm. Picture doesn’t show on the first page of my blog, but does on the article page.
