    Get your facts straight

    Regarding the recent front-page article on the E.F. Knapp State Airport in the Aug. 26 paper, I would like to make a couple of observations.

    The photo accompanying the article is depicted as the airport might look to the public arriving by air. However, the photo was taken before the $6.6 million improvement completed in 2010 which altered its appearance considerably. There is now a parallel taxiway the entire length of the north-south runway and the east-west runway was shortened so it no longer intersects the north-south.

    The airport is located in Berlin and not in Barre as stated in the text of the article. In addition, the Roberti family have been the owners and managers of the Vermont Flying Service at the airport since they created it in 1944.
