Welcome to the Airport Managers Blog, the exciting look into the life of an Airport Manager. Although the blog is primarily about life as an Airport Manager, detailing things about airport life, transportation, and government regulations that affect everyone there will be posts about my life, the things I do in my free time and the things I am interested in. Please feel free to comment on my posts as I’m always open to learning about your view points and what you are interested in.
Today was a great day, Dean Stahr flew one of the last legs of his around the world trip in Watertown South Dakota. Dean is a great guy with many stories to share, and being cooped up in an aircraft sitting next to 250 gallons of fuel can be scary in the wrong weather. There where a lot of images taken during the event, but here are some for your browsing pleasure.
