Airport Fall: 2007

By Paul Hesse (September 2007)

Improvements to the runway have been made to the first 800′ of runway 32. Much fill was placed in the middle to fill in the wear and tear of a turf strip. The runway is much improved than ever before and if it ever rains here again in NC, the centerline will even be better yet. We have a rain deficit of over 20′ now with extreme drought conditions prevailing throughout the entire state.
