A state program may be able to help the Bend Airport fix a very old runway.  "Connect Oregon," a program funded by the Lottery, has about $40 million to dole out.  Bend Airport managers are asking for about $200,000 grant money.  "It deteriorated to the point where the local aircraft operators were having to keep spare tire, the plane would hit the cracks hard enough it could actually flatten the tire.”  Airport Manager Gary Judd spoke with our news partner News Channel 21.  A review committee is recommending six projects in Central Oregon totaling $4 million.  Other projects include improvements to the Redmond, Prineville and Sisters airports, and a grant for a railroad project in Madras.
