Santa Monica airport passed a city ordinance under the “protect the safety of our citizens” montra not allowing larger jets to take off or land at it’s airport.  The FAA is now taking the city to court stating they do not have the authority to make nor inforce the ban limiting planes with an approach speed of more than 136 mph from using the airport.  Read the LA Times story 

These planes account for 9,000 landings and departures a year at the airport, which could translate into quite a bit of lost revenue for the city and airport businesses.
