To the editors:
Your "airport" article [January 4] reminds me of a thought I had long ago.
What we need, rather than more monstrous airports is a new type of aircraft.
A larger, commercially feasible, "jump-jet" type of aircraft, which wouldn't require lengthy and diverse runways is what is needed, and eventually will be developed.
What if such aircraft became available before we've finished our new monster of an airport? What happens to all the projections then?
I have the feeling we are investing all our money in new stables, while somewhere a Henry Ford is tinkering in his garage.
