New Qwest hangar opens

CRESTVIEW, Fla. -- A new 20,000 square-foot hangar officially opened at the Bob Sikes Airport with a ribbon-cutting Friday. Qwest Air Parts of Memphis, Tenn., which dismantles airplanes for spare parts, has been in Crestview for a year and has been working out of the $1.7 million hangar for two months now. The company has already dismantled an A310 and is now working on a DC-10 and MD-88. Air Methods, an air ambulance service, is the airport's newest tenant and will lease space in the new Qwest hangar.
