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 rumors have been swirling of the possible 'impending doom' of the 100 year-old Santa Monica Airport, which I sure hope doesn't happen! This situation leads me to do more plane spotting videos here, in case...one day...the Meigs Field disaster occurs at this little beloved jewel. Here's an article discussing what's going on: http://www.surfsantamonica.com/ssm_site/the_lookout/news/News-2016/July-2016/07_25_2016_Council_Members_Want_Resolution_Calling_for_Santa_Monica_Airport_Closure.html It was an awesome day of spotting with my friend, Joe Solorzano.

A full flight video from Santa Monica Airport (KSMO) to Camarillo Airport (KCMA) for lunch. Flew IFR but did not need to file a flight plan since in SoCal, TEC routes can be picked up without the need to file. The GoPro 5 didn't work and I forgot to start recording the wing view. Used the GH3 to get some shots seen throughout the video. More videos to follow flying around SoCal, also a long video in the coming weeks of Ohio to California.

Bieber arrived and waved to fans before grabbing his skateboard out of his car and taking it for a spin around Santa Monica airport.

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 ...
