OWENSBORO, Ky. (AP) -- Three Kentucky airport towers could close if automatic federal budget cuts take effect on March 1.
The Messenger-Inquirer reports the control tower at Owensboro-Daviess County Regional Airport is on a list of 100 facilities that would likely close if the Federal Aviation Administration has to slice $600 million from its budget this year. Two other airports in Kentucky also made the list: Bowman Field in Louisville and Barkley Regional Airport in Paducah.
The FAA has said it would also have to furlough a majority of its workers if the cuts go into effect.
Owensboro airport general manager Bob Whitmer said he was "surprised and disappointed" to hear about the possibility of losing the tower.
He said the effect it would have on the airport is unclear.
