BURBANK — The Burbank- Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority tacked on another work order Monday to its Part 161 application that would enact the nation’s first nighttime ban on noisier planes. If the Federal Aviation Administration approves the ban — which would prohibit landings or departures between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. at Bob Hope Airport — it would be the first of its kind to ground Stage 3 planes, which feature noisier technology than most of today’s modern aircraft.

VAN NUYS — A noise-reducing measure introduced by officials at Van Nuys Airport could shift nearly 200 flights each year to Bob Hope Airport if a plan to phase out noisier aircraft in Van Nuys is adopted. An environmental review detailing the proposed ordinance was publicly introduced Tuesday in the Van Nuys FlyAway conference room, where scores of informational bulletin boards were displayed in the second-story room across from the airport. If approved, the plan would ground all planes louder than 85 decibels from arriving or departing at Van Nuys Airport in the first quarter of 2009.

The spirit of TWA returned to Burbank on Saturday. The 1937 Lockheed Electra 12A landed at Atlantic Aviation, on Sherman Way, after a nine-day, round-trip flight from California to New York that mirrored TWA’s original coast-to-coast route for passengers. The trip wrapped up in Burbank, the city in which the TWA aircraft was built. “We really do this to keep the spirit of TWA alive,” said Ruth Richter-Holden, who owns the aircraft. Richter-Holden, daughter of TWA co-founder Paul E. Richter Jr., believes fate drew her to the airplane.
