Wheeling Ohio County Airport (KHLG) Manager Bids Farewell After 30 Years on the Job

Wednesday is Tom Tominack's last day as manager of the Wheeling-Ohio County Airport after 30 years on the job. 

On Tuesday night, Ohio County Commissioners said good-bye and thank you to Tominack during their meeting.

Tominack said he was emotional about attending this final commission meeting as airport manager, but he is grateful for the support both from the commission and residents of Ohio County.

"The residents of Ohio County are very supportive of our airport. They've actually become proud of the facility, because they come to our events, and I hear their comments. So, I'm just very pleased," said Tominack.

Rusty Escue was named as the interim manager of the airport.
