Airports close runways from time-to-time. Maintenance is usually the reason. In the case of Heaven’s Landing (GE99) in Georgia, cars are the cause.
More specifically… Auto Racing. In this case, “Heaven vs. Horsepower“.
Mike Ciochetti, developer of Heaven’s Landing, has a significant background in car racing. So letting a group of drag racers take over the runway for a few hours was probably an easy decision for Mike.
The Heaven’s Landing runway will be closed to all aviation traffic from8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. local time, and then closed again from 1:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. local time on both Saturday, June 30th, and Sunday, July 1st.
