This week the City of Bentonville unveiled their new Airplane Rescue Firefighting truck. This vehicle is designed to handle emergencies involving airplanes and will live at fire station #6 on I St. The ARFF truck was purchased with a grant from the Runway Fund at the recommendation of Steuart Walton.
From Drake Field to Springdale, local airports compete for local flights. And with Bentonville being a business hub and one of the busiest non-towered airports in Arkansas, the city’s municipal airport is trying to attract even more business.
