Philadelphia International Airport expansion

    The FAA recently approved a $5.2 billion plan to expand the Philadelphia International Airport which includes lengthening two current runaways and adding an additional one to thwart routine delays and make travel more efficient.

    While the expansion deal will make travel more efficient, the plan comes at a tall cost for residents in the area; the demolition of 72 homes and 12 businesses in neighboring Tinicum Township.

    To discuss the controversial plans surrounding the expansion, airport CEO Mark Gale and President of the group Residents Against Airport Expansion in Delco join Marty Moss-Coane on Radio Times.
