Guidelines for posting on

The Bangor Daily News and the Bangor Publishing Co. encourage comments about stories, but you must follow our terms of service.

  1. Keep it civil and stay on topic
  2. No vulgarity, racial slurs, name-calling or personal attacks.
  3. People who harass others or joke about tragedies will be blocked.
The primary rule here is pretty simple: Treat others with the same respect you'd want for yourself. Here are some guidelines (see more):

  • Southwest Airlines Please 

    •  you can move to a big city and put up with traffic and crime if u want southwest that bad. Bangor is far to small of a market for southwest. The more business and good jobs like these will be the higher the demand will be for added flights.

      • We at-least need some kind of more competitive airline or at-least get service back to boston… anyways southwest is awesome.. they have it in Portland and Portland is just a little bit bigger then Bangor 

        • East of Chamberlain Lake in th

          Unlikely to happen.  Neither the economy nor the population base can support the high frequency flights required to sustain a low cost carrier like Southwest.  The economy and population of Southern Maine dwarfs the Bangor region.  A substantial percentage of local residents currently seek air service at Portland and that is likely to increase as Southwest cranks up at Portland.

          • It’s annoying……

    $579,000 / 20 =  $ 28,950 per job to help it renovate an existing hangar at BIA into a aircraft paint facility, which would allow C&L to expand its services and hire an additional 20 employees, Pereira said. The total project will cost nearly $1.16 million “, 
    So whose paying the deference, the company or the city …. making it $ 58,000 per job ??? How much per year is the lease ?The BDN reports these stories like they’re silly cheerleaders.How can any one tell if we should care about  this may-be deal at all from the way it is reported ?

      this expansion will allow them them to employee up to 150 people.. Full time jobs… so divide the 58K by 7 and you have 8K a job. not a bad deal,

    Since Denisenko is currently listed in the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN), any U.S. person or entity is banned from doing business with him or his companies.

    “He actually acquired a lease agreement through a Finnish company called Alandia Air and leased a plane out of the U.S. from Bangor, Main, from a company called C&L Aerospace,” she said.

    It was the U.S. division of the C&L Aerospace company that got caught up in the illicit activities of Denisenko and Kosolapov.

    In the report, the company expressed their concern with the Denisenko connections: “We did not even think to check the possibility that they were performing illegal activities.”


    The national debt is sixteen (16) TRILLION so what’s another 1.2 MILLION federal $$ to Chris Kilgour, CEO of C&L Aerospace for a paint facility.

    Wonder about federal $$ for a company that ” did not even think ” and has already leased a plane in BANGOR to a terrorist group.  More planes from Europe for a “paint job” ??
