Cracks in runway funding

"From an aerial view from Utah Helicopter, planes rest near hangers at the Spanish Fork-Springville Airport, Tuesday, March 15, 2010."

The other day, I headed down to the Spanish Fork-Springville Airport for a fairly routine assignment.

My task was to simply make something of the airport. The story was about trying to shift the runways, but there are obvious cracks in the budget, so things are up in the air.

I had to call ahead to get a tour guide per say, as I wasn't allowed to freely roam the airport alone.

My guide was very helpful and offered to get me up into a helicopter for some aerials. He scratched my back, I scratched his.

He put me up in Utah Helicopter with a great pilot who knew his stuff. Apparently they do a lot of training which may make for a cool story later on.

Anyways, we roamed the airways for a short period of time before we landed. I had a blast and cannot thank Utah Helicopter and those who put me up for a couple minutes.

I would keep that contact near the top of the list man. This is a pretty cool photograph that would surely enhance the story. Good stuff!
