Mark my words - the moment it starts raining airplane parts over peoples houses and there is a class action against the FAA, and there will be, these towers will reopen. It is just a travesty that is going to take our brothers and sisters sacrificing their lives for it to happen.
Its sad but this happens all to frequently. In a previous life I worked at a trauma center with a busy helipad and have been witness to more than one close call. Most vivid is when a local ems helicopter was preparing to depart as an out of county guy was coming over the top of our parking garage on a blind approach. They literally were less than 10 ft from having a really bad night.
