Frontier Flying Service Hangar Burns
Investigators last month had yet to determine the cause of a December 26 fire that destroyed Frontier Flying Service’s hangar at Wiley Post-Will Rogers Memorial Airport in Barrow, Alaska. The blaze didn’t damage any airplanes and no one was injured, but the airline lost its two-story building and various ground-support equipment. At press time, insurance adjusters hadn’t finished calculating the dollar value of the damage. The primary passenger and freight carrier to and from Barrow, North America’s northernmost community and the North Slope’s transportation hub, Anchorage-based Frontier Flying Service flies a fleet of eight Beech 1900s and five Piper Navajos.
