For many people, travel by air has lost its allure, but there’s at least one airport in Virginia that thrills travelers from around the world. Sandy Hausman paid a visit and filed this report.
Hot Springs, Virginia – in Bath County -- has the highest public airport east of the Mississippi – a one-mile strip of asphalt at the top of a mountain.
“You lay a miles of asphalt and call it a highway, you can go exactly one mile. With this you can go anywhere you want to in the world.”
That’s Paul Howell, chairman of the airport authority and a big fan of the view.
