Dept Of Transportation To Pull Air Traffic Controllers From Smaller Airports
OPA-LOCKA, FL - MARCH 04: Air Traffic Controller, Robert Moreland, works in the control tower at Opa-locka airport on March 4, 2013 in Opa-locka, Florida. Due to sequestration cuts, small airports such as Opa-locka, which is a popular spot for corporate jets to land, will close its control tower in April to save federal transportation dollars under the federal spending cuts that went in to affect last week. Even though the control tower will close, planes will still be able to use the airport just without the help from the control tower. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
