Veterans Parkway to be closed during 2013 Airshow

From the Millington Fire Department

Veteran’s Parkway to be Closed during Air Show
The Memphis Air Show featuring the Canadian Snowbirds Demonstration Team returns to the Millington Regional Airport September 27-29. Due to the close proximity of Veteran’s Parkway to the air demonstration area Veteran’s Parkway between Highway 51 and Navy Road will be closed to all traffic and spectator viewing. Veteran’s Parkway between Raleigh-Millington and Navy Road will remain open throughout the air show. This year’s traffic plan has been revised to provide quicker access to spectator parking. Signage and law enforcement will be posted at several locations as you approach the Millington area.

Veteran’s Parkway Closure Schedule:
Friday, September 27 3-8:30 p.m.
Saturday, September 28 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.Air Show
Sunday, September 29 8: a.m. – 5 p.m.

    I think this a attempt to keep persons from viewing the planes that can not afford the HIGH price of entrance to the event; otherwise why are they not closing all of it, since it is in direct line with runway. Just another way for city government to burden it’s citizen with their greed; after all it is being called the MEMPHIS airshow, not Millington’s.
