Historic airport improvements

May 18, 2004

Americus-- Sumter County's historical airport is being improved again.

Souther Field is the site of Charles Lindbergh's first solo flight.

Recently, the airport's runway was expanded to 6,000 feet. Now, a more than $300,000 dollar federal grant is paying for a new fence.

The airport also plans to build two additional hangers, but that project is not expected to begin this year.
