Richard Downing gets a face lift

As you drive your car along Airport rd. in Coshocton you notice the long winding sharp ledged densely forested and shaded terrain. You will peak the road at a 90 degree right hand turn as you sweep by the gate and chain link fence at the opening of the top of the hill and run out of road at the square beautiful brick building. You look up and the smiling words Richard Downing airport stare back at you.

MMS Aviation is proudly located at this airport by God's design. We have a wonderful relationship with the airport administration and work well together with them. This past month the airport was closed due to the long straight 5000' runway in need of resurfacing repairs and remarking of the taxi ways. It was amazing to watch these professionals strip the old surface and prepare it for the new surface and then resurface all 5000' feet. Truck after truck lining up to dump their load until every square inch was redone.

 Being at the top of the hill has it's working advantages. Being October and the change of seasons displaying a beautiful explosion of reds, yellows, and oranges to the scene as the days stroll along. Below are a few pictures of the repaving  and turning of the colors.
