Killeen: Any Central Texans, Any Info?

Sat Jul 31, 2004 2:04 am

I just came across this article and was wondering how everything is going with the new construction. The article states that the terminal doors were to open on Monday, but doesn't state whether it did or not. Anyone have pictures of what it looks like? Does this mean that the airline service to ILE (i.e. American Eagle) move to the airport? Any info would be appreciated. Thx

You'll find more information in this thread:

But, to answer your question, the airport will open Monday, August 2. All airline service will move to the new airport.

The first airliner landed at GRK on thursday, unscheduled. A Skywest EMB-120 with a flap problem diverted to GRK when it couldn't return to IAH due to weather and Killeen Municipal's runway was too short to land on without the use of wing flaps.

Was it repaired at GRK or was it flown back to IAH flaps up?
