"...were Ames to lose control of the airfield the FAA might allow cargo flights into Moffett — raising the specter of much more noise in Mountain View's airspace than the occasional "Google jet.""

Oh, the horror! To the 30 people in the flight path (who apparently have forgotten what it was like when the Navy was there), consider that this would be a much more efficient use of the airfield, and would create hundreds of desperately needed JOBS!

Moffett Field is beautiful airfield with parallel runways of 12500ft x 250ft wide. I hope they start landing the Space Shuttle here!!

Besides, it was here WAY before the N.I.M.B.Y.'s (Not in My Back Yard) If you don't like it....leave. MV is too crowded anyway.
