Finally, this weekend I got the time to take a few pictures of the newly named region, Fairburn. It was a long and tedious process, but I finally have enough built to start posting! So, without further ado, let's get down to business. It's only fitting we start in the airport, as we just arrived. FRI, or Fairburn Regional Airport was built in 1980, following demand for more travel when the great agricultural boom happened (we'll get to that later). In 2003, a cargo terminal was added, with capacity to move 10,000 tons per year. Last month, the main terminal was expanded, allowing turboprops to park. The upgrade increased the airport's usage from 30000 to 50000 passengers per year. FRI now serves frontier airlines, air canada jazz, southwest, horizon, US airways express and fedex. Here's a few pictures:
