My dad told me about it while I was talking on the phone with him. They plan on closing Gravelly Point down by this summer. Pure nonsense bullshit. They think its a hazard to airplanes landing or takeoff off since it is close to distance to shoot down an airplane. Well, ANYWHERE is too close, not just public spotting areas. Not just shutting down Gravelly Point, but also BWI
and other airports with outside viewings. INSANE!!!
I don't think they will close it down. Gravelly Point is TOO popular to shut it down and if they did close it down, well, the terrorist wins again! Otherwise, I'll be getting a petition going up if they were to close it down. Besides, I think the news is just pure bullshit information about aviation. That's why we have ANT--Aviation News TV
