Shepherd private pilot who is not satisfied with conditions at Meacham Field on night flying and disciplining on buzz jobs over the Keys wrote the following let ter to the CAA in Atlanta, William M. Robertson, Regional Adminis trator, with a copy to The Citizen: Dear Mr. Robertson; Please find enclosed an article from The Key West Citizen, dated Wednesday, February 4, 1953. I would appreciate some information regarding this. To start with, the article states that the Civil Aeronautics Ad ministration bars flying after sunset at Meacham Field. If you will kindly refer to the Airman's Guide, Vol. 7, No. 22, dated Jan uary 13, 1953, you will see thet page 29 lists Meacham Field for night operations as temporary lighting on prior requests only. I have contacted the CAA INSAC at Boca Chica requesting to know if a NOTAM has boon is sued superseding this issue of the Airman's Guide, and found none. I would like to know why the county commission and the airport manager state that the Civil Aeronautics Administration i will not allow flying after sunset at Meacham Field. The same article by The Key West Citizen states that the air port manager repeatedly "or dered" us to stop "buzz jobs" I over the Keys. Would you bo so kind to inform them that they have no jurisdiction other then at the airport concerned. If, and I say again, if wo were flying low, that is perfectly legal according to Civil Air Regulations Port 40, Paragraph 40.17, sub-paragraph (c). Thanking you for your kind and immediate attention, I re main, Yours truly; C. W. SHEPHERD George Faraldo, airport man ager, and director of Faraldo’a Flying Service at Meacham, said when the letter was read to him: ‘‘There can be no night flying at Meacham unless there is someone to manage the smudge pots. We have no lighting at Meacham ex cept for that.
