D-Day and the Battle of Normandy 70th Anniversary

Discussions between the Airport Manager, Steve Wilcox and Doug Raine have been very successful. In the spring speed signs will be installed and handicapped parking spaces will be created.
In the meantime, we are hoping the letter that Steve Wilcox sent to Gemini to pass on to their clients will result in increased courtesy and respect.
