    There are more safety problems for New York's three major airports.

    They've had problems on their runways for years. You'd think those safety issues would have been resolved.
    They haven't.

    So the most dangerous part of your flight at LaGuardia, JFK, or Newark may be on the runway.
    When FAA inspectors performed their last annual safety audits at the three major airports, they found them to be out of compliance.

    The Port Authority says the violations were minor and have been fixed.

    But pilots who rely on runway lights and signs for safe movement might see things differently.

    They are among the nation's busiest airports. That's why runway maintenance is critical to their safe operations.

    But FAA Inspection reports Eyewitness News has obtained show JFK, Newark and LaGuardia Airports have among the highest number of safety deficiencies.
