APG 130 – Fracking PIT
Play

Pittsburgh International Airport will stay open as drillers tap the gas reserves underneath, thanks to a technique called hydraulic fracturing, or commonly known as “fracking.”

Dayton International, not too far away, is experimenting with planting tall prairie grass in an effort to reduce bird strikes.

More news, including a pilot losing partial control of his Flybe DH8D because of a prosthetic arm malfunction, and a Jet Airways B-777 co-pilot apparently unable to return the jet to their assigned altitude after descending some 5,000 feet. Seems like that would be something a pilot should know how to do?
