California IN BRIEF : ALAMEDA : Naval Air Station Back in Business

From Times staff and Wire reports

The runways at Alameda Naval Air Station are mostly go these days, 2 1/2 months after the big earthquake virtually grounded routine air operations at the base. One of the two runways damaged by the Oct. 17 quake has been repaired and the base has resumed normal air operations, according to a base spokesman. “For all intents and purposes, we can have anything take off and land,” said spokesman Bill Valente. “We’re operational.”
