Kinston Ready To Take Off

A regional airport in the East is getting help with a technological upgrade courtesy of federal funds.

Congressman GK Butterfield made the announcement Friday that around $500,000 dollars will be earmarked to aid with the 3.8 million dollar cost of enhancing Kinston Regional Jetport instrument landing system.

The system would be upgraded from a category two to a category three.

Experts say the upgrade will allow for almost any kind of aircraft to land on Kinston's runway in any type of weather.
