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  Smile

ILM has had a record august. Pax count up 23 percent compared to 2006.

From ILM website:

Quote:
Our commercial air service operations for the first eight months of 2007 is at record pace of 528,704 or 23.0% over the same period in 2006 and 9.0% over 2005, our record year.

We also got a 2.5 million dollar check for more runway improvements. I cant figure what more they need. Runway 6/24 was just repaved last year and ILS added. But more funds are always a good thing.

I leave for a year or two, and bam, expansion everywhere. Almost thought that they relocated all of the rental car lots to expand from Concourse A along 18R.

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.

Congratulations to Greensboro-Winston Salem-High Point.. ehh.. Piedmont Triad International Airport.. whichever is Politically Correct...

However, there is still more Continental announcements to come.. wonder what else is in the cards for North Carolina...

Continental currently serves four (4) North Carolina markets..

Raleigh-Durham
Piedmont Triad
Charlotte
Asheville

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...

Thoughts? Comments?

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.

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.

Plane crash at my local airport, Hendersonville (0A7), today.

^ Link includes a nice video and some photos. Worth checking out.

Looks like the pilot escaped with just "minor injuries", he was "sore all over". The plane was some sort of one-seater WW1 replica.

Anyway, glad to hear the guy is safe and alive.  Smile

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.

Looking at this photo, the trees on the far end of the runway are what I'm talking about. You cross over the trees then pretty much go straight down from there.  Smile

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.
