Burke International Airport, Opposition


A newspaper headline in 1951 announced that Burke farmer, Jones Jasper, asked the District Court for a preliminary injunction against any airport within 12,500 feet of his 100-acre farm. The suit charged that "frequent operation of large, heavy, powerful multi-engined civil aircraft over plaintiff's property at an altitude below the navigable air space. . .would constitute a continuing trespass on his property. . .and endanger persons and animals."
