From: Matt Kasper

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Any and all flight records for the following aircrafts:

To clarify my request, I'm simply looking for data pertaining to flight history--which airports these aircrafts flew between and when.

Please constrain the search from October 4, 2017 through October 12, 2017.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. Additionally, the organization I work for, the Energy and Policy Institute, is a clearinghouse of information and can qualify as a representative of the news media. There are several examples of public record requests that have been provided to my organization and that were then published on our website to inform journalists publishing articles. Also, I have accounts with news outlets including Huffington Post and Republic Report. Past publications on these outlets as proof are available here ( and ( Additionally, previously FOIAs from the Energy and Policy Institute have been categorized under Title 10, Code of Federal Regulations, Section 1004.9(b)(3) as a "news media" requester.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
