Waco Flying Service Company Capitulates; Flags, Signs Will Come Down • Waco Regional (KACT), McLennan County, Texas

WACO (October 21, 2015)     Unapproved flags and signs displayed at hangar at Waco Regional Airport are coming down, the company leasing the hangar said Wednesday, a month after vowing to fight to keep them in place.

Waco Flying Service Co, which provides such services as fueling, hangar space, tie-down service, aircraft rental and maintenance and flight instruction, placed U.S. and Baylor University flags on the company’s sign in front of the hangar and signs on the hangar bearing the messages “We Support Our Troops” and “Sic ‘Em Bears.”

But in September Airport Director Joel Martinez sent a letter to the fixed-base operator demanding that the unapproved signs and flags be removed from the hangar the company is leasing from the city.

Operations manager Will Bowers said in September he and his company were prepared to fight the removal order, but a spokesman confirmed Wednesday that the unapproved signs will be taken down next week.
