Tauscher's Feel-good Stage 2 Aircraft Ban
Original post made by Stacey, Amberwood/Wood Meadows, on Jul 19, 2007
I'd just like to write to all of those folks who think Tauscher is doing great for her move against stage 2 aircraft as if she is listening to citizen concerns more than the Livermore City Council is. Most stage 2 aircraft were already banned back in 2000. She is filling in some loophole on a national level that still allows stage 2 aircraft under a certain weight. I highly question what effect it will have on aircraft noise at Livermore Airport and expect the answer is "not much". Does anyone here know how many stage 2 aircraft actually fly into/out of Livermore and what the frequency is? Well it definitely isn't enough that a ban will satisfy the anti-airport fanatics around the Tri-Valley.
