The City of Santa Monica may now proceed with shortening the runway at Santa Monica Airport (KSMO) after a temporary restraining order halting the work was lifted by U.S. District Judge Ronald Lew, who had put it in place.

Airport Director Stelios Makrides said that the city is pleased with the court's decision, "which allows it to fulfill its commitment to the community and the FAA. The city will renew work on the runway-shortening project, which it expects to commence within the next week..." French pilot Melanie Astles became the first female pilot to win a Red Bull Air Race when she won the Challenger Class at the Red Bull Air Race in Indianapolis. The win came after she was fastest in Qualifying on the Saturday. When bad weather meant the racing was cancelled on the Sunday, the results stood and she was declared the winner of there weekend’s racing. For the past three years the Tulsa Squadron of the WWII Airborne Demonstration Team Foundation has been working diligently to restore the organization’s Douglas C-49 ‘Wild Kat’. Major restoration work has been provided by many skilled volunteers from the local aviation industry and also by interested aviation history enthusiasts in the Tulsa area, with more than 15,000 man-hours of effort put into the project to date. Now, the aircraft has again been certified as airworthy and returned to the air at Richard Lloyd Jones Jr. Riverside Airport (KRVS) in Tulsa. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
