Airplanes sit on the tarmac at Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti, Michigan, U.S., on Friday, Oct. 14, 2012. Willow Run Airport, about 10 miles east of Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport, is an example of a facility targeted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for reduced hours. More than 100 U.S. airport towers and radar rooms have so few flights that they should be shut down late at night under the government’s own guidelines, a move that would save taxpayers $10 million a year.
