I helped open the new airport in Branson, MO this past weekend. Flew my trusty DC-3 into the new airport (KBBG). It is a complete privately funded airline airport, 7100' x 150'. Took no federal funds built in 22 months by local business people for $155M. Neat terminal made of old barn wood. Real nice friendly people. BTW Downtown Branson on the river is a really super lay out. Spent 4 nights in the Hilton. BTW Airline service started today a 0900L, when Sun Country flew in the first flight.
