While the discussions and studies continue, the jets continue to roar over Cabin John. If the CAP comes up with a test scatter which is agreeable: to the COG, a test scatter might happen in August, but then again it might not. On December 8, Erich Buchmann, Frank Sordyl, and Dan Costello met With the. Noise Abatement Officer and other officials from Washington National Airport.
