Selma Airfield Awarded Federal Funds

Selma, AL – Craig Airfield in Selma will receive a 300 thousand dollar federal grant. Congressman Artur Davis says the U-S Department of Transportation awarded the money to help repair cracks in a runway. Inspectors recently found large cracks that could endanger aircraft as they land. Craig Airfield serves as an industrial development site used mostly by aircraft manufacturing firms. It used to be a U-S Air Force base until it closed in 1977.
