re: My Hometown Airport

Very interesting post, as I too watched aircraft as a young child right here. It saddened me to see this airport dwindle in the 90's. I now run Appalachian Inspection and Maintenance on this airfield, along side Elkins Aviation (flight school) and Advanced Avionics. This airport is once again coming alive!

My Hometown Airport

I looked up in the sky from here as a young boy and learned how to identify aircraft using GOC and CAP manuals. American Airlines served here through my childhood and finally Lake Central Airlines who hired me in 1963 for a 35 & 1/2 year ride through USAIRWAYS where I retired in 1999.

I thought when LCA hired me that I would get to work in my hometown, but it was not to be. My career was to start at KPMH and end at KCMH. Most of my time was at KCVG.
