What is Trujillo doing, trying to create a crisis for Mayes to take advantage of, when there is none -

I am a Libertarian and fiscal conservative and I also support the idea of having an air traffic 'shoulder' for planes to use.
Nothing is wrong with the government doing things to make sure effecient and competitive commerce takes place.
Enjoy the interesting weather,

Can any body explain to my thick skull How come all emergency landings are always in FMN but all the money from the air liner always ends up in DRO. Does it paint FOR EMERGENCY AIRCRAFTS ONLY on runway ?

Producers assistance corporation. It is a contract middleman oilfield company that pays their employees shyt wages and shyt benefits and expects them to come to work with a smile on their face. Conocophillips loves using them because they dont have to hire on full time employees and it save them tons of money on benefits because they just pay PAC a flat rate per hour worked.

Farmington has 24 hour Crash Fire Rescue at the airport. The only one between Albuquerque and Colorado Springs.

Hate to tell you that the crash rescue truck at FMN is not maned 24 hours as the tower is not opened 24 hours also.Also this aircraft was north of FMN near the San Juans not south or east as it would need to be to be between ALbq.and Colo.Springs.Famington has just been lucky when it comes to Emergencys -that luck will run out and they will have a mess on those SHORT EDGE of cliff runways!Just a matter of time.DROs runways are almost twice as long and half again as wide.

Before people write they should verify the accuracy of their statements. Then again, everyone has the right to express himself/herself, regardless of whether they make fools of themselves or not. I am just glad that we have an airport that provides a service to the community!

You are dead wrong. The crash rescue (Striker) vehicle is manned 24/7, 365 days per year at the Farmington airport.

what is the post regarding Ben Truillo? by "whatmeaning"?

Ben does a fabulous job.

Farmington is one of the safest best airports in the country per the FAA.
YES the Striker is manned 24/7

the Cirus22 was south of Farmington when was intructed by a GLA pilot and Denver until passed to Fmn tower

Uncontrolled? KFMN is Class D airspace when the tower is open (0600-2200) and class E when the tower is closed (2200-0600). The only uncontrolled airspace there is, is class G, and it's not over KFMN.
