Donald Trump Sues For $100M Over Flights Above Ritzy Florida Club

Donald Trump is again upset about the roar of jets in a $100 million lawsuit over air traffic he says is purposely being directed to fly over his ritzy Palm Beach club.

Trump filed the suit against Palm Beach County last week, claiming his history of conflict with Palm Beach International Airport has led officials to spitefully redirect air traffic over his historic Mar-a-Lago estate.

Rather than fanning air traffic in multiple directions, Trump says the county’s airports director has pressured the Federal Aviation Administration to direct almost all flights due east, over Mar-a-Lago, the suit claims.

Noise, vibrations and emissions from the planes are causing damage to the building, not to mention disrupting the “tranquil ambience,” the lawsuit says.

He says his Boeing 757 has been forced to fly over Mar-a-Lago.

“It’s doing tremendous damage to the No. 1 landmark in the state of Florida, between the vibration, the soot, the noise, all of these elements,” Trump said.

The County Attorney’s Office said it had not seen the lawsuit and had no comment.
