Blackfoot Could Build New Airport


McCarley Field

(BLACKFOOT, ID) – The city of Blackfoot is considering a proposal to build a new airport. Mayor Paul Loomis says that if planes weighing more than 12,500 pounds continue to use the runway, they’ll have to relocate it to another place in the county. Area pilots say they’d rather see Blackfoot keep its smaller airport for private use. Officials say they’ll monitor aircraft using the runway to determine if an upgrade is necessary.
