Santa Gets The All-Clear

The Federal Aviation Administration has given the all-clear - for Santa Claus to come to town.

The FAA has cleared Santa and his sleigh for take-off on his annual Christmas flight.

Agency spokesman Frasier Jones says Santa's sleigh and his reindeer are in top working order and he's been cleared for unlimited flight operations.

Jones says air traffic controllers will use the latest technology to guide Santa and allow him to pick the most efficient routes.
