    Another great job by BIA (BGR) and Bangor personnel.  It seems to be time to take the “interim” tag off from Mr. Caruso’s title.  He seems to have earned the job with his proficient handling of these recent diversions.

      What exactly does he do to handle these diversions?  He wouldn’t have even been at the airport when this happened.  He’s a lot more active with the press than Hupp, that’s about it.

        He runs the airport which is 99% more than most people do everyday. Tony has more common sense, managerial ability and leadership in his pinky finger than Hupp had all together. He knows that, she knew that and if you knew the airport, you too would know that. The city of Bangor needs to lock this boy into a contract now, before he gets away.

        Um, he’s the BOSS and his people have handled these situations well.  In my book that equals good leadership.

      By coincidence the Wall Street Journal just did a very complimentary  report on the outstanding job BGR has done to accommodate diverted flights.

    BGR needs to invest in some nice coach buses. Yellow school buses look lame. In any event, kudos to everyone for avoiding a ‘Swissair 111’ type incident.

    I guess this is one way to get people to visit Bangor.

    Great job and kudos to all involved, including BIA personnel, the pilot & crew, the passengers, the hotels who accommodated the passengers,  firefighters and law enforcement.  I’m so glad to hear that no one was injured and that a tragedy was averted.

    I live in Morrill, ME and I was wondering why last night a plane was flying really low over my house.  Glad they landed safely.

  • A charter with Cheech & Chong on it?  Seriously the BGR airport leadership is outstanding by any measure!
