Peter O. Knight Airport and Davis Islands Plane Crashes
Peter O. Knight is a classic Florida airport nestled near a downtown area. A sister airport in St. Petersburg, Albert Whitted Airport, was the subject of a 2003 City wide referendum to close the airport out of safety concerns and to recover the valuable real estate. In recent years, there have been a handful of high profile stories surrounding the airport.The 2006 crash led to a feature on ABC's Extreme Home Makeover that got residents involved. The Tower is unmanned and this has led some to speculate that having more resources might help but these accidents all appear to be random acts.
