it's pretty easy to tell the difference between russ bianco and fake russ bianco. Fake russ bianco is really fake Joe Salustio

He uses name calling and thinks that he is debating

good question whiner. The half-empty glass is indistinguishable from the half-full glass. One chooses to be positive or negative. Be positive, you get positive. Be negative, well, you know. You benefit what you give.

The fact remains Frank we have all the noise and very little economic advantage from the touch and goes here. I think the decision to get the base was purely political.

Get used to it and quit whining. Besides, the newer aircraft aren't nearly as loud as the good ol' war birds that used to fly from The Griff back in the day.
I miss the roar of the B52's. What is the plane flying around now? C17?

The plane with vertical winglets on the ends of the wings is a C17.

We had one. Not enough passengers. People proved they would rather drive to Syracuse, or even Albany or Rochester, than use Oneida County. Not even Sherry Boehlert could convince them otherwise.

Nearly 40 years ago, Dallas and Ft. Worth closed their city airports, Love Field and Meacham Field, and began to use DFW Airport. Today, the two cities have grown together into one large metropolitan area where business, commerce and industry thrive today.

What are the chances Syracuse and Rochester or Syracuse and Albany would follow such a model today?
