This is the first installment of, what I hope will be, a series of threads dedicated to Wisconsin aviation. It will be a place where we can discuss news or ask questions that might be interesting, but not important enough to generate their own individual threads.
The first news item that I'd like to share is a proposal to rename GRB.
|Quoting Green Bay Press-Gazette:|
ASHWAUBENON — When you're an airport, it's sometimes not enough to have a war hero's name.
Austin Straubel International Airport could undergo a name change, under a proposal Brown County supervisors are expected to consider in November.
The proposal would add "Green Bay" to the front of the name, though the airport is actually on the Oneida Reservation in Ashwaubenon and Hobart. It's the brainchild of Jet Air Group president Alan Timmerman, who said the community is losing business because people don't connect the airport's name to the Green Bay area.
