Bridgeport’s municipally owned airport is located in the Lordship section of Stratford. The city can do little about modernization and improvements without Stratford’s land use permission. In the myopic world of Stratford, who cares how many get hurt or die? Whatever hair Airport Manager John Ricci has left on his head he’s probably pulling out. He’s handcuffed by Stratford’s runway narrow-mindedness. Another lawsuit has been filed.
From the CT Post:
A Westport woman who suffered severe and possibly permanent injuries to her left leg after the plane she was traveling in crashed at Sikorsky Memorial Airport on June 25 is suing the city for failing to follow Federal Aviation Administration and state recommendations to remove a steel blast wall.
