Flight festival return eyed

FAIRHOPE, Ala. -- The president of the Fairhope council is pushing an effort for the return of a Festival of Flight, which has not been held for five years. Funding remains an uncertainty, as well as the date. One of the reasons for a possible return of the event at the H.L. "Sonny" Callahan Airport is Airbus' decision to build an A320 assembly line in Mobile. The feeling is a return of the festival and perhaps a trade show and job fair will help attract more aerospace business to the airport. (Source: Mobile Press-Register, 01/14/13)
