Air Traffic Control Tower Still in Limbo

Ray Boudreaux, director of the Fayetteville Executive Airport, said Thursday airport administrators still have no official word from the Federal Aviation Administration on whether the FAA will pay to operate the air traffic control tower at Drake Field past June 15.
