    Error On Ground Closes Main LB Runway Early, Sending Post-10 p.m. Flight Over Rooftops Onto Runway 25R, Rattling Residents b/w Studebaker Rd. & Clark Ave. between Wardlow Rd. and Conant St.

    (August 12, 2003) -- An incoming American Airlines flight rattled parts of ELB between Studebaker Rd. and Clark Ave. after 10 p.m. Aug. 12 when the FAA diverted flights onto runway 25R (aligning roughly with Monlaco Rd., between Wardlow Rd. and Conant Sts.) because someone (not the carrier) prematurely closed the Airport's main diagonal runway 30/12 and runway 25L before all incoming commercial flights had arrived for the night.

    LB Airport spokeswoman Sharon Diggs-Jackson told standard procedure is to wait to close main runway 30/12 until all incoming commercial flights have landed...expected by 10 p.m. However, someone on the ground erred and closed runway 30/12 before the late-arriving AA flight arrived...sending the flight onto 25R.

    Large commercial flights aren't supposed to occur between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m...and can be violations of LB's Airport ordinance unless the carrier makes a sufficient showing to airport management demonstrating the 10 p.m.-11 p.m. activity was due to weather, mechanical issues or matters not within its control. (If the carrier makes a sufficient showing, the 10-11 p.m. activity can be excused.)
