NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Will it snow?

That's a main question for next year's Super Bowl at the Meadowlands in New Jersey.

Behind the scenes, the focus is on much more, including how to move people in and around — and over — MetLife Stadium.

Federal aviation officials say they're working on flight restrictions over the stadium for Super Bowl Sunday. It's a challenge because MetLife Stadium sits a few miles from Teterboro Airport to the north and several miles from Newark Liberty International Airport to the south. Those two airports and New York's LaGuardia and JFK combine to make the most congested airspace in the country.

No-fly zones have been used at Super Bowls since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks
