Airport control; tower, has, accused the radio-TV st'^r ' of careless; and reckless flying.':'. ; -.: Godfrey had said earlier, .and repeated last night on his television show, that a 70-degree. cross wind of about 40 miles per hour caught his twin-engine craft just as he took off from Teterboro a week ago. • . - U From Miami Beach Godfrey said: "It was unintentional; ancj if Td scared the boys in the tower I am sorry." ...;.-' Later, Fred M. Glass, director of aviation for the port' authority, which pperates tho major airports in • the New York , metropolitan area, including Teteboro,' said 'he noted Godfrey's explanation but told the Civil Aeronautics Administration: ' •-,: ' "It is difficult for anyone 1 f ami-, liary with the aerodynamics. and the characteristics of , the DCS (Gdofre>'s plane 1 * ,to beliey.e that wind of that velocity-reported could "possibly cause such "a ma;n. miVer ,if the pilot and ,co-pilot wished to keep the plane'; on course." : . "••'•,/ •;/".'.. •.'.-; First reports had said Godfrey, upset. because he was riot allowed to take off on his favorite.' runwaj;, ".buzzed" the control iower. '•*'., •'The port authority ; asked the CAA, if facts substantiate /it, to discipline Godfrey "to demonstrate vigorously and unmistakably tnat reckless flying will not be toler- ~ated in' this area. 1 ' •• • Maximum disiplinary action would be revocation of Godfrey's pilot's license. • Glass claimed the wind, when Godfrey took off; was at '20 to 30 miles an hour. From the information he had,' Glass said, "it would appear that the aircraft was operated carelessly and recklessly and in disregard of the traffic pattern described for Teterboro Airport iri violation of . .-'.ciy.il air'regulations:"';. Glass said the rirport••manager checked wind velocity right' after the incident. Two other planes had cleared the same runway a few minutes before Godfrey ..took. off. "Neither, of the aircraft'.taking pff before the DC3 experienced any difficulties," Glass, went .on, "a}though both of them are far lighter than the DCS." In his telecast last night, Godfrey said the CAA had not contacted him on the matter, and added: , '•••". "I will-be happy to cooperate with the Port, .of New York" Authority or anyone else who might want to investigate the takeoff." In a Florida press conference yesterdp.y, Godfrey said: • "Jimminy, I thought everybody knew what happened. Th'e big trbu. ble is that the Port of New York Authority closfd our runway because planes using it — in calm weather — had to fly ov*r Hasbrouck Heights, N, J. "That's okay in calm weather, but in windy weather the runway designated for use frequently requires a cross-wind takeoff. That's what happened to me. ". . .1 came pretty close 'to the control tower, close enough, in fact, to note that nobody was visible !n the tower. I don't bjame them for getting out w but it wasn't intentions!."
