FAA chief operating officer Hank Krakowski said Thursday he had removed the manager and assistant manager of an air traffic control facility in Dallas-Fort Worth.

In unrelated news, Leon is getting laaaaarrrrrger. By which I mean, via USA Today, "Dallas air-traffic controllers systematically hid their involvement in safety errors that brought planes too close together, federal officials said Thursday." --Robert Wilonsky
