Open house at the airport

Folks flew in and drove in to visit the recently refurbished Atmore Municipal Airport Saturday, March 10, when city officials and airport management hosted an open house and fly-in. Cutting the ribbon are airport manager Freddie McCall Jr. and his wife Margie. To his left is Mayor Jim Staff who said 10 aircraft flew in for the event – including LifeFlight. He added that threatening weather conditions may have kept some aircraft from flying in.
