As summer travel peaks, airports face chaos due to a clash between 5G signals and radio altimeters, a problem ignored for years. The 5G expansion, scheduled for July 1, interferes with critical altitude measurements during flights. The Federal Aviation Administration knew this, but the cost of upgrading fleets and concerns over 5G’s impact delayed the rollout. A shocking 20% of domestic and 35% of international aircraft are still awaiting necessary upgrades, risking restrictions, and flight cancellities. With a record 4.17 million Americans flying this holiday weekend, travel disruption looms large.
