Snap: Ready for takeoff in Gordonsville

news-gordsonsvilleairportrunway-mThe "takeoff roll" on the paved runway.

The Gordonsville Municipal Airport has been getting some extra attention recently. Known to aviators at KGVE and owned by the town that shares its name, it's actually privately run and recently assisted by a relatively new group of volunteers called GAPS, or Gordonsville Airport Preservation Society. Last Saturday, August 28, a reporter took a little ride with one of the volunteers, Skip Degan, who also occasionally shoots aerial photos for the Hook.
