Re: Omaha Eppley Airfield

Sorry if this has been asked before but here I go anyway. What size does an airport need to be to have some sort of a repair shop? In flying in and out of Omaha that has been my major headache.

Still, what is up with United? 14.6% of their traffic on mainline is a travesty, no way around it. At this point, hopefully the airport authority is working with them to see why this happened/what can be done. Because... One thing in the story in the owh a while back from the director.

So based on what little I know of air traffic, Eppley should be sufficiently long enough to support take off/landing of 747 aircraft.
