Former USAF Base Opened Passenger Terminal In April
Things seem to be looking up (pun intended) for upstate New
York's Plattsburgh International Airport (PBG), seven months after
the converted air force base opened a new passenger terminal, in
hopes of attracting commercial airline service.
Forty-five people who died when their flying boat crashed on the
Isle of Wight 50 years ago were remembered in a special ceremony
Sunday. The Aquila Airlines plane crashed into an abandoned chalk
pit near Chessell on November 15, 1957.
There's now another reason for travelers to pack neatly when
taking an airline trip. In addition to making sure your
clothes aren't (overly) wrinkled at your destination... you'll also
be making a TSA screener's job a bit easier.
