runway woes

pip bips infrastructure post made me think of the big issue going on in my state. mainly that the second biggest airport in the state is closing up shop for 4 months while they tear out the runway, excavate 18 million cubic feet of Earth (5400 feet by 200 feet by 17 feet) and put in a new one. that wouldn’t be too unusual expect the airport has been open only 8 years. ouch. 24 million. The runway is wavey and rippled because of soil expansion. i flew into this airport a few months ago. i recall the bumpy ride but mostly remember the hilariously steep approach.

At least the flight in is spectacular.
