The opening of a new runway for civil use is a rare event, but even more unusual when that runway is 12,501 feet of smooth pavement, specifically the joint military-civil-use Grissom Air Reserve Base in Peru, Ind. Grissom ARB, previously available to civil operators with prior permission only, was formally opened to regular public use during a dedication ceremony held on September 17.
