Cape Wind opponent appeals latest FAA approval


BOSTON (AP) — A group opposed to the Cape Wind offshore wind farm has appealed a federal ruling that says the project poses no danger to airplanes, saying the decision is steeped in politics.

The Federal Aviation Administration last week issued a determination of "no hazard" for the 130-turbine project off Cape Cod.

An appeals court had forced the FAA to reconsider a previous approval, saying the agency hadn't adequately determined the project's effect on pilots who fly by sight only.

The Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound appealed the latest approval Wednesday, saying the FAA put politics ahead of public safety.

FAA documents have shown employees felt political pressure to approve Cape Wind.

A Cape Wind spokesman said the appeal has dim prospects, since the latest FAA ruling clearly addressed the court's concerns.
