Weather Affects Flights at Monterey Regional Airport:

Some flights into and out of Monterey Regional Airport are being affected by weather, specifically the low fog layer. Since some flights could not arrive at the Airport on the foggy nights, there was no airplane on the ground for the early morning flights departing Monterey the next day. There were a number of flights that were delayed as well, but eventually were able to arrive at the Airport.

Future of Santa Monica Airport on the November ballot

SantaMonica AirportTwo opposing measures to decide the future of Santa Monica Airport (SMO) in southern California will appear on the city ballot in November. The ballot is the latest weapon in what has become a contentious battle over the future of the airport.

Measure D stipulates that voter approval will be required before the airport can be closed or redeveloped. A second measure, LC, will allow the Santa Monica City Council to make decisions about closing the airport and redevelopment without voter approval.
