  Finally, a jet they don't like
Now we have seen it all. A recycled jumbo jet that is being used to construct an environmentally friendly residence? How ironic. If jet fuel prices keep going "sky high" maybe the trend will be to put more jets out to pasture and finally invest in transportation that is not dependent on volatile commodities like oil. Alternative transportation that would compete with the airlines? Now that would really “irk" the FAA and the airline cartel.


High fuel prices hammer airlines


Testimony February 15, 2006: Commercial Jet Fuel Supply: Impact and Cost on the U.S Airline Industry
The purpose of this hearing is to examine the impact and cost of commercial jet fuel on the U.S. airline industry, including: (1) how commercial jet fuel is produced, transported and priced; (2) steps airlines have taken to increase fuel efficiency in the wake of rising fuel costs; (3) the effect of certain air traffic control (ATC) modernization programs on airline fuel efficiency; (4) the impact of new aircraft manufacturing technologies on fuel efficiency; and (5) what actions, if any, the Federal Government can take to help the struggling U.S. airline industry cope with higher jet fuel costs.

Calculate Your Personal Impact
Pollution from jets, cars and making electricity are major causes of global warming. Take a personal pollution inventory and see how you can help...YOUR FLYING.. How many plane trips do the people in your household take together each year? Do any members of your household fly separately, such as for business trips?

  What they really mean is ...
We can also fill in the Delaware River and build a third PHL runway that points at Delaware and New Jersey and continue to subsidize airport growth with tax dollars. How convenient, and the FAA will not even have to permit and pay for this very expensive piece of this project.

Airport proposes 2 costly expansion plans
Philadelphia Daily News, PA - Mar 23, 2006
A less radical plan, which Philadelphia officials favor, keeps the terminals where they are but lengthens three runways and builds a new one along the Delaware River. That plan would require filling in a part of the river.

Dredging clash draws interest across globe
Cherry Hill Courier Post, NJ - Apr 7, 2006
Much of that could be used as fill material to build new piers between Packer Avenue terminal and the Philadelphia Navy Yard and north of the Walt Whitman Bridge, according to Sean Mahoney, marketing director of the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority."
