Airport lands funds to improve aircraft accommodations

CORINTH — Local officials have accepted a grant of $204,520 to improve aircraft accommodations by enclosing the hangars.

The Daily Corinthian reports Alcorn County and Corinth officials agreed to funds for work at the jointly owned airport.

Corinth-Alcorn County Airport officials say the project would be completed in 2013.

Airport board of directors chairman Waco Epperson says some aircraft have been damaged because the T-hangars are open to the elements.

Epperson says with enclosed hangars filled to capacity, the airport could generate almost $30,000 in additional income each year and bring additional people into the Corinth area.
