Concourse named for Metcalfe

MOBILE, Ala. – The Mobile Regional Airport's concourse on Monday was dedicated to Matthew S. "Matt" Metcalfe, who served for 35 years at the Mobile Airport Authority. Metcalfe's service with MAA began at its 1970s inception and continued until his 2014 retirement. He now serves as director emeritus. Among other things, Metcalfe played key roles in developing the regional airport and with the redevelopment of the former U.S. Air Force Base at Brookley Field in downtown Mobile into a general aviation facility and industrial park. Roger Wehner, the authority's executive director, said there's not a single aspect of the organization Metcalfe has not helped shape. (Source: al.com, 08/17/15)
