I definitely need to get back to AVL to see all the updates to the terminal and the new art gallery addition. I'll be in RDU at the end of the month to see all the construction havoc that is being wrought.
That map is a nice bit of information to look at

Aviation is proof that given, the will, we have the capacity to achieve the impossible.

Quoting Fdex727 (Reply 8): Woo Hoo, CO service to CLE is coming back to GSO March 4th!
Nice to see this - last year, I had to fly GSO-DTW-CLE-MHT since NW cancelled it's morning flight, but CO still had a CLE-MHT morning flight. Problem was, I had to go through DTW to get to CLE to make that flight. I still got in earlier than what I would have done waiting in DTW for the later flight, but a double-connect there was a little annoying.

Quoting ERJ170 (Reply 11): Do we think Continental could potentially add Wilmington, Fayetteville, or New Bern? If any are added, i think it would be to Newark.. and it would either be with the RJ or Q400...
We at ILM used to get COex (GP Express) back in the 90's with B1900C/D's. They went ILM-GSO. I assume this was back when GSO was a mini hub.

[quote=ERJ170,reply=17]So, with United back at RDU...
First.. how many people left CLT and GSO to head back to RDU? Anyone know..[/quote
6 left GSO, not positive about CLT, but when I Ieft CLT to come back to GSO there were 3 folks from RDU who I know would have definitely returned. One more will be leaving GSO as soon as part time slot comes available.
You may see SFO added at some point but it will probably be status quo for a while.

Is this the same guy that crash landed another military replica aircraft onto 4 Seasons Blvd in Hendersonville about a year or so ago? I was up in the area over Labor Day and they were giving rides in Military Helicopters and the Replica aircraft during the Apple Festival.

Quoting MattRB (Reply 20): They've got a museum of sorts there, don't they? Is it worth checking out? I was going to head over the last time I was in AVL, but the day I chose, they were closed, unfortunately.
Yeah, they do. The historic aircraft are pretty impressive, but the museum isn't very extensive. Unless it's convenient, it's probably not worth a long drive out. It is somewhat interesting though.
What's the most fun is watching GA pilots come in right over the trees and then sink down to make the runway in time. Really neat approach.

I'm not sure, that thought crossed my mind as well. The crash you're talking about was 3 or 4 years ago, though. I was kind of under the impression that the pilot died in that crash on 4 Seasons. Maybe not.

Were you up in Hendo for the Asshole Festival? Cool, I was there too. All three days, actually. You didn't happen to see the parade, did you?
Yeah, the WNC Pilots Association gives rides out of Hendersonville during the Apple Festival and during the Air Fair up here.
