Aircraft Tampering

May 22nd, 2008

Sometime between 4/6/8 and 5/10/8 someone deliberately poured a substance down the heater air intake of the Coltharp’s C-150 while in front of, or in, their hangar.
The substance caused smoke to enter the cabin while in flight. A precautionary landing was successful and the substance was discovered and removed with no damage or injury.

Would anyone in our airport community who has seen suspicious activity during this time period or experience a similar event please contact Bill Coltharp or the Lago Vista Police Department at (512.267.7141)?

Preliminary Airport Closing Schedule

A message from Bill Coltharp, Chairman of the Airport Advisory Board:

A preliminary schedule for closing the airport (runway and taxiways) has been determined, as required by the construction activity. Chris Robertson, Project Supervisor, Cravens Partners, is scheduling the construction activity that will require the airport to be closed beginning Tuesday morning May 27 through Friday afternoon, May 30 for the resurfacing of the runway and taxiways.

Opening for the weekend of May 31 & June 1 is possible, with NO STRIPING on the runway or taxiways.

The airport will then be closing again for two days, Monday and Tuesday, June 2 & 3 for painting the striping on all surfaces.

The airport will open again on Wednesday, June 4.

This schedule is preliminary, and is dependant on weather conditions and final approval of the engineer.
