Walnut Ridge, Arkansas, a "Major Hub"

For those of you who don't know, Walnut Ridge is a small town just north of Jonesboro, with a population of less than 10,000, and a Mayor who should really look into fixing the water supply before he tries to improve the airport, which right now has no commercial service.

To quote the Jonesboro Sun: "The Mayor also sees it as a potential hub of activities with spokes leading to many parts of the nation-even other parts of the globe."

Right now the only thing happening at the airport is a small salvage operation which has started work on a couple WN 732s, and the recent round of CO MD-80s that have been scrapped.

What would make this guy think that a town of less than 10,000 people can support a global hub???

I think he's speaking of the Global Hub growing up his @ss.

OAK which is the CLOSEST airport near my house can handle a 744 if it wanted to but it doesn't b/c it's not big enough to hold the amount of large large a/c that would be required for longhaul and it's just a BAD DESTIONATION compared to SFO which is just a bit more down the road. BAD DESTIONATION is the key term. Who the hell is going to fill a/c to international destinations with a pop. of less than 10,000???

This guy needs to wake up and spend the people's $$ on what's needed.

Thanks again!

For example, a new water supply?
