Residents take legal action over flight path

According to an article in The Australian, residents of Dunalley and Murdunna are taking Airservices Australia to court over the implementation of flight paths. They allege that safety was not Airservices's first priority as it claimed, because the decision was driven solely by the need to move a navigation beacon to accommodate runway works at Hobart Airport and key safety implications were not considered.

If successful, it appears the case could have implications for flight path changes in other areas.
