Panama City Florida International Airport
Look out world here comes Panama City and Bay County Florida There will no doubt be many many articles in the media over the next several days, so I'll omit some of the political references and move right to the event.
The "Groundbreaking" ceremony of the New Panama City Florida International Airport held today was very possibly the most momentous day in the history of Panama City, Florida, depending of course on your personal view of the airport.
Although Florida Governor, Charlie Crist was unable to attend the "Groundbreaking" ceremony due to pressing issues in Washington, his recorded message: "Bay County is Open for Business" was heard loud and clear!
For me, it was an opportunity to be associated with begining of a new era.
The event saw attendees from all over Bay County Florida.
From Attorneys and politicians to business leaders and Pilots and of course myself and other local real estate agents.
It was promising to see the turn out to an event so many worked so hard to see to completion.
I've included a few pictures of the event and have items of note:
Eric Draper - of The Audubon Society re-inforced the dedication to the preservation of wildlife and the environment.
Mr. Draper brought an additional celebrity with him - Paige, a female bald eagle at the Florida Audubon Society’s Center for Birds of Prey. She was absolutely magnificent to behold!
The Panama City Florida International Airport will be the first airport constructed since 9/11.
The Panama City Florida International Airport will be the first 'green' airport of it's kind.
An interesting lack of protestors (I only saw 1 ) was very interesting as the nay sayers didn't seem to find the groundbreaking important enough to attend.
