Small airports revamped to accommodate larger planesSubmitted by Hannah2 on Tue, 08/18/2009 - 06:29
I received this email this afternoon with an interesting observation. All I know is of the sender that she lives in US. Have sent her a return post asking the approximate location in US.
Anyhow, I thought it interesting enough to pass on and perhaps some of the members here have observed similar activities.
Has anyone seen the small airports and what is happening?
Our town is population of 2,000 yet the government has allotted a million dollars to revamp a tiny airport to accommodate lear jets and military planes, now why in a tiny retirement town? You ought to see it, unreal!
I was talking to the engineer of the project, he told me it was for military planes to be able to land, the strippers was in doing all the military stripes on the runway, everyone is wondering just what is coming down. And I was told by the engineer and strippers, this is just one of many, they have jobs all over doing the same, they are now starting a job in the next town, doing the same.
There is only 4 small little planes at our airport period to start with. one an two people type.
