Thank God the under-used Paine field airport will finally be opened up to regular passenger service. The selfish opposition by Mukilteo residents has finally been realized as the smokescreen that it is. As a resident of Everett, it will be great to finally fly to destinations like Hawaii and not have to travel to Sea-Tac. Jet aircraft today are quieter than many propeller driven planes. The economic benefit to the residents of Snohomish county far outweighs any negatives. This advance is long overdue.
