John Beardsley, center, CEO of SeaPort Airlines, greets McCook Mayor Dennis Berry at Ben Nelson Regional Airport on a windy Tuesday afternoon. Public Works Director Kyle Potthoff looks on. The Swiss-built nine passenger Pilatus PC-12, although lacking a bathroom and flight attendant, "is made to order" for places like McCook. "We hope by adding frequency we can overcome the price difference." The plane is the "creme de le creme" of turboprop aircraft," Beardsley said. The SeaPort contingent flew in for Portland, Oregon, in pressurized comfort at 28,000 feet and a little more than 300 miles an hour. Current air service is provided by Great Lakes, which will make a presentation to the Airport Advisory Commission at noon Friday at the Heritage Senior Center."
