Park Overflights: A Problem Out of Control


    Nearly two months ago I was reminded by the National Parks Conservation Association of the unresolved issue of how scenic air tours over national parks should be managed.
    In a nutshell, the problem stems from a turf battle between the National Park Service, which believes it holds jurisdiction for the skies over national parks, and the Federal Aviation Administration, which believes it has the final say over anything involving flying machines.
    While I haven't be able to adequately address this issue, there's a wonderful piece by ABC News' Bill Redeker that examines the dispute. You can find it here.


I thought that beautiful and sacred places like the Grand Canyon are lessons to be learned that "silence is golden". I miss the whisper of the wind!

Hey birdie...listen to the wind whisper thru your ears!!lol....
