Stage 2 jets are under attack again at Van Nuys Airport (VNY) in Southern California.

A Part 161 study under way at VNY could eventually result in the elimination of Stage 2 jets, but the board also wants LAWA to pursue a program under a grandfather clause in which Stage 2 operations would be phased out during a seven-year period.
