Spring Flood 2018 Relief
Our field was flooded when the Ohio River swelled to a level that hasn't been seen for over 20 years. The entire field was covered and everything but the roof tops of the shelters was covered. Flight stations and picnic tables floated away. We have not been able to get close enough to know exactly how much damage has been done and the extent of repairs and or replacements to the electric and water systems.+ Read More
Our first work day to clean up from the flood was a bit challenging but we had a good turnout. Some of the work that was needed was ALL electric breakers and receptacles (all are GFCI) had to be replaced, lots of mud removed from runway, taxiways, driveway and parking lot, flight stations retrieved and positioned back to their original locations plus debris removal. We still have quite a bit of work to be done before the field will be ready for the 2018 flying season.
