Rialto AirportIf you ever wondered what the movie might be like about the last day at Santa Monica Airport, here's a preview.

The movie's "opening" is Sunday August 31, 2014.

Its closing is this Sunday, too.

Rialto / L67 will be closed and gone after Sunday, August 31st. And it could be duplicated at Santa Monica if we don't get further organized, more money raised, and this initiative passed.

wilderness areas and other locations (all of which are uncharted) have been scuttled, at least for the time being.

California officials had sought to require a 2,000-foot minimum altitude for flights over state wilderness areas, with a 500 foot agl minimum over "cultural preserves" and "natural preserves." (CalPilots Editor's Note: This is an excellent example of the Three Tier Airport/GA Protection Process and why we need local, statewide and national organizations involved and supported).
