  • Curbing on the loop road is ongoing.
  • The General Aviation area access road is being final graded.
  • The flight line storm sewer is 85% complete.
  • On Runway 16-34, the asphalt base layer was scheduled to start going down on October 10, 2008.  Concrete paving on the runway is expected to begin on November 11, 2008.
  • The earthwork on Taxiway D is 97% complete, with the stabilized sub grade 65% complete.  The limerock base is nearing 50% completion.  Asphalt paving is anticipated to start October 10, 2008.

Mapquest and Google Earth are both outdated and you cannot see the new airport location or construction process from their satellites. I do not live in PCB but am interested to see where new airport is and it’s progress, along with locations of newer beach properties.

Is there a satellite picture that anyone knows of that is live or up to date to view the new airport and surrounding areas?

If not, is it possible to request an updated view. (A lot of the newer beach front properties and neighborhoods are not on these maps either).

It is hard to say at this time where we will get direct flights to and from as no carriers have been announced. I would assume that direct flights from most of the major cities would be very possible. Not sure about direct flights from Europe, though.

As far as current views of the airport, I have all of the updated aerials on this site, see http://pcbdaily.com/?cat=4.

As far as where it is, see http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=30.344584,-85.801334&spn=0.077776,0.138531&t=h&z=13

It is somewhere around that area, I may have something on that in this site as well, just poke around.
