Lighting Los Angeles Airports

NECESSITY is also the mother of progress if the night lighting of Los Angeles airports may be cited as an example. Some of the finest night lighting equipment in the United States has recently been installed on various airports in or close to Los Angeles city, not through any civic pride but because airline operators found it necessary to include a number of night landings in their schedules, and the Department of Commerce will not permit transport planes to land on unlighted airports.

What Our Readers Say

The case of Smith et al vs. New England Aircraft Company, Inc., et al, decided March 4, 1930, by the Supreme Court of Massachusetts, is so generally considered as of unique importance among those interested in the law in relation to aeronautics, that I think that your readers may be interested in a somewhat more detailed comment on the case than that which appears in the March 15, 1930, issue ot AVIATION.
