  • Final Hours At The Historic Santa Monica Airport (Before Runway Shortening)

    This is a sad video for me to publish, but here it is. For those who may not be aware, Runway 3/21 at SMO has now been shortened from 4,973ft (1,516m), to just 3,500ft (1,067m), in an effort to force larger jets to use other area airports, this move is expected to reduce jet traffic at SMO by nearly 50%. To add insult to injury, the airport is now scheduled to close December 2028. Keep in mind, this is essentially all happening due to a very small, but vocal group of NIMBY's, even though this historic jewel has been here since April 1923. More details: http://www.nbaa.org/ops/airports/smo/santa-monica-airport-to-close-december-12-for-10-days-will-reopen-with-shorter-runway.php Here's a Facebook post on Harrison Ford's jet and the runway shortening on Santa Monica Airport's page: http...

Operations resumed on December 23 at the Santa Monica Airport (SMO) in California after the city completed a project to reduce the runway length from 5,000 feet to 3,500 feet. The shortening consists mainly of changes in runway markings and lighting, taxiway configuration, and relocation of navaids with the intention of limiting the types of aircraft that can use the airport, namely business jets. This is the beginning step of a stated overarching goal to completely close the field altogether by the end of 2028. Residents of the city have been fighting to close the airport due to perceived environmental and safety risks while facing opposition from pilots and other interests in the airport community, as well as national organizations such as NBAA and AOPA. The ultimate closure of the airport will result in the loss of millions of dollars of economic benefit for the area, but the airport is located in one of the richest parts of the United States which likely won’t miss the lost revenue. NBAA is still challenging the action, and fighting for the future of the airport in the U.S. Court of Appeals, so it is possible that the original configuration could be restored. The general aviation community remains optimistic that NBAA and airport advocates will prevail in their lawsuit to overturn an agreement the FAA struck with the city that paved the way for the runway shortening and ultimate closure of the airport.

Santa Monica California (SMO) California Airport Driving directions 17 Minutes About this airport: Santa Monica Airport (IATA: SMO, ICAO: KSMO, FAA LID: SMO) (Santa Monica Municipal Airport) is a general aviation airport largely in Santa Monica, California. The airport is about 2 miles (3 km) from the Pacific Ocean (Santa Monica Bay) and 6 miles (10 km) north of LAX. The FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013 categorized it as a reliever airport.[2] The airport will remain open until 2029. [3] Originally Clover Field, after World War I aviator 2nd lieutenant Greayer "Grubby" Clover, the airport was the home of the Douglas Aircraft company.[4][5][6] The first circumnavigation of the world by air, accomplished by the U.S. Army in a special custom built aircraft named the Douglas World Cruiser, took off from Clover Field on St. Patrick's day, March 17, 1924, and returned there after some 28,000 miles (45,000 km). Cloverfield Boulevard—which confuses the field's naming for a crop of green rather than a fallen soldier—is a remnant of the airport's original name.
