Description

Denver International Airport control tower operators have been putting passenger safety in jeopardy on about one thousand flights a year by green-lighting take-offs in high crosswind conditions without warning pilots. A commercial jetliner crashed and burned in 2008 as a result of crosswinds at DIA, but despite that event, the FAA refuses to change its procedures.
