Re: Nashville Aviation Thread - 2019

From what I've heard, the ramp tower will be up sometime next year. Judging the fact it happened near gates C13/C14 at night, I...

Re: What’s happening at BHM?

Slightly off topic, but looking at the 1999 OAG North American timetable on Departed Flights, BHM used to have a lot more service to other southern cities that have now all but dissapeared, with the only ones left being the mega-hubs of ATL and CLT and destinations in Texas and Florida. There used ...
