Mayor Daley bulldozes Chicago's Meigs Field

Quote:
Update: Mar. 31 Sneaking in under the cover of darkness, city of Chicago construction crews began tearing up the runway at Meigs Field this morning at about 1:30 a.m. There was no advance warning, not even to the FAA. Some 16 aircraft are stranded on the field. A city source told the Chicago media that the "airport is closed for good" for "homeland security reasons."
Full Story - http://www.aopa.org/whatsnew/newsite...03-1-157x.html

AOPA members react angrily to Meigs closure - http://www.aopa.org/whatsnew/newsite...03-1-158x.html

Could Meigs happen elsewhere? - http://www.aopa.org/whatsnew/newsite...03-1-159x.html

WTF?!

From the Yahoo! groups group Pilots-L:

Guys and Gals:

I'm a fellow pilot and occassional poster here. I won't waste time
and space explaining it all now. The petition itself explains the
situation and why it's so bad as do the two links included within
the petition. Please go sign it and pass this on to anyone you can!
Every signature would be of extreme help.
