By Michael D. Bolden
The Federal Aviation Administration and the Department of Defense broadened the airspace for commercial flights during Thanksgiving week, allowing commercial planes to fly through restricted airspace starting at 6 a.m. last Tuesday. That ends tomorrow morning at 6 a.m.
The Department of Defense released airspace off the East Coast above 24,000 feet; airspace over the Gulf Of Mexico; and airspace over Twentynine Palms, Calif., and White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.
