Oneida County "celebrates" the One Millionth Gallon of jet fuel sold at Griffiss "International" Airport with a big press release.
Does this mean that the Airport is finally self-sustaining? . . . . I didn't think so.
The number of "operations" at the airport continues to fall. The only reason O.C. did so "well" in the fuel department is due to military -- i.e., government -- flights.
But how "well" did we do? As of 12/11/14 OC took in $84,473.46 . . . just about what we are paying the new airport commissioner.
Perhaps O. C. celebrates this "non-event" to distract from the fact that O. C. has to chase down Mid-Air to collect $700,000 it is owed.
