‘The Briefing Episode #11: PROOF’ – area resident/activist Steve Edmiston’s ongoing attempt to “take on the Port of Seattle, one public comment at a time” – has been released:

And because he referenced it in his comments, here’s the relevant “closing the beach” clip from Jaws:
Edmiston is responding to an FAA and Port staff briefing in Spring, 2017 that he contends was both incomplete and inadequate because it failed to convey, among other things, data on the harms being caused to humans and the environment by airplanes. The goals of this documentary film project include using Edmiston’s collected public comments as the spine of a feature documentary film. As a private citizen, under Port bylaws, Edmiston must provide his 43-minute briefing – the same time provided to the FAA and Port staff – in two-minute public comment segments. Edmiston estimates the project will take 9 to 12 months to complete. For more information on this compelling ‘Citizen vs Goliath’ project, visit:
