This is one of the stupidest things I have ever seen. The local government of Tempe. (abutts Sky Harbor to the east)wants to build this 200 ft tall footbal stadium (NFL Type for our European friends) 1.4 miles off the end of the runway. The FAA ahas declared it a hazard to the safe operation at Sky Harbor. It will effectivly shut down one of the 3 Runways. These idiots (the Stadium Authority) have been saying the hell with the city of Phoenix and Sky Harbor the stadium is more important. It has really raised quite a storm of protest from many groups. Go to azcentral.com for the full report. You wont believe what you read. The Cheif Pilot for WN told the FAA yesterday that over half of thier pilots will refuse to use the effected runway in PHX. HP has made no comment because thier vice president of Public Relations is on the Stadium Board. The pilots union for HP has stated that they also wont use the runway if the stadium is built. This is the most insane thing I have seen in awhile!!
