Bet you didn't know this about the airport...

(Thermopolis, Wyo.) - During this week's Hot Springs County Commissioners meeting, an interesting fact emerged when discussing the new airport. GDA Consultants of Cody was going through a punch-list of final items to be completed at the airport when the automated landing lights system was mentioned. Pilots approaching the airport at night can activate the landing lights by remote control. It seems that the new radio receiver at the airport is so sensitive that when a Great Lakes Airlines flight at 19,000 feet and preparing to land at Riverton turns on the runway lighters there, the lights also come up on the Thermopolis runway. It was noted that the sensitivity of the receiver has been turned down a bit to see if that solves the issue. *Feature Photo: Runway landing lights (Google Images-Pixabay / Pitchengine Communities) * #springcity #county10 #news
