Plans are underway for BIA's 50th birthday

BANGOR - Bangor's most prominent transportation terminal will be celebrating a birthday this year.

Bangor International Airport turns 50 in 2018, and the city is beginning plans for a celebration.

 

As the easternmost airport in the United States, and a major stop for servicemen and women.

 

Organizers are eager to throw a party.

 

BIA director Tony Caruso said "It has such a rich military history. As we're approaching our 50th anniversary, we thought it was a significant milestone that we should celebrate."

 

Nothing is set in stone yet, but Caruso said the city is planning events for two to three months from now.
