Summary:

Air traffic control was inhibited when construction repeatedly damaged cabling at Los Angeles International Airport. The Los Angeles Times used FOIA to obtain a letter from the Federal Aviation Administration to the city's airport agency, describing several incidents in which "critical cables" (supplying power and information to sensitive equipment) suffered damage as a result of construction activity, which temporarily inhibited airport traffic control.
