American Airlines' 1970 technical feasibility study of a Floating Interim Manhattan STOLport (FIMS) in the Hudson River adjacent to the residential community of Chelsea met with strong, well organized, effective opposition. The nature of these confrontations, the interactions of the principles, and the lessons learned as viewed by the airline are of value to any project where technological implementation is perceived by the public as a threat to their quality of life.
