Tucumcari Airport Upgrades, 8/25/08

Planes arriving at the Tucumcari Airport will soon have a smoother landing.

The city received around $200,000 to make repairs on the runway.

They will primarily use the money to seal cracks.

Construction on the runway will start following the air show at the beginning of October.

Also coming soon to the Tucumcari airport, pay at the pump jet fuel stations.

That will allow pilots to use their credit cards to fill up their jets.
