Opposition grows to Miramar as joint-use airport

The vote on a new airport site isn't until November, but opponents of using Miramar as a joint-use airport are gearing up for battle now. They're kicking off a fundraising campaign tonight to get the word out on what they say are the dangers of joint-use at Miramar. KPBS reporter Beth Ford Roth has more.

The group called "Support Our Military: No on Miramar" says national security and public safety is at stake.

Retired Navy Rear Admiral Bruce Boland is a member of the group's executive committee. He says the campaign will use the money it raises to of The air operations at Miramar are not scheduled and often carry ordinances.

Boland: "Mixing airplanes together, both commercial and tactical aviation is inherently unsafe, speeds, patterns, and things such as that."
