Illinois U.S. Senator Dick Durbin is calling for a review of steps taken in resuming air travel after incidents like Friday's fire at an Aurora radar facility. The Illinois lawmaker says he spoke with FAA chief Michael Huerta on Sunday. He was told that the plan to get airports up and running after flight disruptions needs improvements.
Chicago airports are still experiencing cancellations and delays from last week's incident. Durbin says repairs to the air traffic center are underway. A contract employee allegedly set a fire in the suburban facility and tried to cut his own throat.
