Smaller plane appeals to this off-island owner

Apparently a longer runway would enable US Airways to run larger planes into the Hilton Head Island Airport. This would result in even fewer flights per day than at present.

As the owner of a second home on the island, I would visit more often if more flights (with fewer passengers per fully loaded flight) were available. The little Dash 8's are fine by me.
