Airport's Fight for Survival
Tuesday, October 23, 2001

Since the September 11 terrorist attacks, Freeway Airport in Bowie, Md., has remained closed. Freeway, like five other small airports, sits inside a FAA-designated 18-mile no-fly zone around Reagan National Airport. Owner Stanley Rodenhauser was forced to lay off most of the airport's staff as he waits for the restrictions to be lifted. One of the remaining employees, Bruce Peck, a mechanic, fears that he could be next if the airport can't open soon.
