FAA gives OK for 360-foot antenna tower

Posted: Thursday, August 17, 2000

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The Federal Aviation Administration in Washington has reversed a decision on building a 360-foot antenna tower at Point MacKenzie.

The regional office in April had determined that the tower across Cook Inlet would pose a hazard to air navigation. But the national office reversed the decision late last month upon a review requested by Morris Communications Corp., which owns newspapers, magazines and radio stations.

The FAA in Washington determined that the proposed antenna tower is not an obstruction and won't have an adverse effect on the safe utilization of air space. The petitioner for Morris Communications pointed out that aircraft in the area are not allowed to fly under 500 feet.
