December 4, 2012 -- No Xs

First aircraft to take to the new runway! He didn't lift off, just warm-up and taxi.

Dec. 3, 2012 -- Almost finished, a lot late

If the airport opens tomorrow, Dec. 4, 2012... it will be just under a month overdue. In the morning, they may remove the yellow Xs and open us up. The forecast is for rain in the morning, so the Cherokee might not come home to roost from Willow Springs until Wednesday. 1MO has been closed since July 25, about 4.5 months. Ten feet wider, 60 feet; 600 feet shorter, 2990 or so.
The last worker leaves this afternoon. New sign; Taxiway A, runways 26 and 8.

Last night for the barrier, perhaps. It's all seeded and mulched, ready to go.
