(Atlantic) Officials from the "Fly Iowa" free air show slated for September 15th at the Atlantic Municpal Airport appeared in front of the Cass County Board of Supervisor's Friday morning to discuss road closures, including the railroad during the live show.
"There is an "air box" and this is the box the performer's actually have to stay in when they do their routine," stated Flight boss Gary Maas. He says the residents affected have already been contacted and air show officials will be in contact with railroad officials. Maas says the show lasts about an hour and a half and Fly Iowa officials will begin closing the airport that morning.
Cass County Engineer Charles Marker informed the supervisor's that the eastern part of Galeveston Road northwest of the airport would be closed, and (G30) or Highland Road would be closed from Atlantic to just west of the residents living at 59071 and 59020 Highland road. Traffic will be re-routed on the gravel road located just south of those two residents.
