A giant Ferris wheel a developer wants to build at the Xanadu
entertainment complex in New Jersey will hamper air traffic safety
at Teterboro Airport, (TEB) according to a determination by the
Federal Aviation Administration.
"Such structures would likely alter how aircraft
approach and depart Teterboro, which might lead to a reduction in
the amount of traffic. Less traffic at Teterboro would mean more
landings and takeoffs at the metropolitan area's major hubs, which
are already stressed. There is really not a lot of leeway in
reconfiguring departures and arrivals."

coaster planned for New Jersey's Xanadu entertainment complex.
