MAXWELTON - The Greenbrier County Airport Authority planned to participate in a lawsuit that challenges the Federal Aviation Administration.

The lawsuit is one of several filed by airport operators in other states that challenges the FAA's decision to close control towers at 149 small airports.  Members of the Greenbrier County Airport Authority voted unanimously Monday to join one of the lawsuits. 

Earlier this month, the FAA announced that the closures would be delayed until June 15 because it needed more time to deal with legal challenges.
