Back in the 70s/80s the planes would come in to collect the weed and there would be clashes with soldiers! Later, they 'bombed' the strip so planes couldn't land no more. One summer we went camping at Garvey Maceo school just above (and to the right of) the strip. Nicest time ever!!! I remember there was a crashed plane at the strip and we snuck out to see it! So cool!
i think ken jones airport should be made for small flights to land there, from montego bay and jamaica, it would create new jobs for portland people and also it will be easier for relatives coming home now and then on holiday to portland. It would also boost the tourist side of pretty Portland
im very interested to know how the development of my local aerodrome is going!
