Beech 18 Aircraft Cuts Ribbon, Plymouth Airport

Beech 18 Aircraft Cuts Ribbon, Plymouth Airport

MassDOT Aeronautics this week joined Federal Aviation Administration, airport, and town officials for ribbon cutting ceremonies to celebrate completion of Plymouth Municipal Airport runway improvements.

The $4.7 million project lengthened one of two runways by 1,000 feet to match the other runway and added new 300-foot emergency stopways to each runway. Airport managers say the runway improvements will enhance safety and reduce noise.

A local pilot taxied his Beech 18 aircraft to cut the ribbon in honor of the completion of the runway improvement project.

“Thanks to the town of Plymouth for its support,” said Kenneth Fosdick, chairman of the Plymouth Airport Commission. ” I truly believe this is a hidden jewel of Plymouth.”

“This project is an excellent example of the Airport Commission, airport users and neighbors working together to find a consensus to improve safety and noise abatement. Our goal is to continue to guarantee that Plymouth Airport adds to the economic health and safety of our community.”

The project began in November 2015, with 90% of the project federally-funded, six percent of the funds from MassDOT Aeronautics and four percent in local funds.
