A Timeline Showing the History of Pilot Safety Concerns Regarding the Lights at Levi's Stadium

FAA e-mails and internal reports obtained by NBC Bay Area show safety concerns over the Levi's Stadium lights were more serious than previously known

This timeline shows the history of pilot safety concerns regarding the lights at Levi's Stadium. Created using internal FAA e-emails and reports obtained by NBC Bay Area under the Freedom of Information Act, these records show there were far more complaints about the potential flight safety hazard than previously known. The emails also show some within the FAA suspected the 49ers of duping the agency on a flight safety test, and that others within the FAA and the National Air Traffic Controllers Association wanted the agency to act more aggressively to mitigate the potential risk.
