Re: Sanford, Maine

One cool Sanford claim that is impressive for a small city of only 20,000 is the numerous landings Air Force One made during the Bush Presidential years. Even though Sanford Airport's primary runway is only 6000 feet long, a lot of infrastructure, radar, lighting and other safety improvements were made by the Federal Government to accommodate the transportation needs of the two Presidents, their families and staff.

Obviously smaller narrow bodied aircraft were utilized during those years, don't think the runway could handle 757's and larger equipment. Sanford's closer location to Kennebunkport and lack of commercial air service made it a better option than the Portland Jetport. I think Pease Airport was used on occasion also which has a runway that can support any size aircraft.
