Murkowski concerned about Fairbanks air traffic control staff, sent letter to FAA

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Sen. Lisa Murkowski is expressing her concern about reduced air traffic control staff in Fairbanks.
Murkowski sent a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration Friday saying reduced personnel at the Fairbanks tower may be dangerous to aviation traffic in Fairbanks.
The FAA recently cut back on air traffic control staff in Fairbanks including the terminal radar approach control.
The regional radar center in Anchorage now handles the midnight shift.
Murkowski asked the FAA to provide a plan to staff the facility in the future.
