Okla. airport control tower closings postponed
WASHINGTON – The FAA announced a last-minute reprieve for more than 100 regional airport control towers scheduled to be shut down this weekend due to federal spending cuts.
Those closings will be delayed until June 15.
The delay should give communities more time to decide if they can pay to keep those towers open on their own.
A handful of control towers here in Oklahoma could be impacted by the sequester.
Nationwide, more than 1,000 jobs were expected to be lost as a result of the closures.
