Wilmington Airpark (KILN) has been a Cargo Hub for many of the nation's largest cargo carriers for many years. Once a large FedEx and UPS hub and now home to DHL and Airborne Express. Unless a miracle happens soon,(KILN) will be closing its runways in the very near future. Indianapolis ARTCC would like to celebrate its many years of service to the community of Wilmington Ohio. Thousands of jobs will be lost and in these trying times this will affect many lives. This event goes out to all of those families who will be directly impacted from this economic tragedy. We want to give pilots options with this event, so we would like all Cargo flights to fly into KILN, all Domestic and International Passenger flights to fly into Dayton International (KDAY), and all Military flights into Wright-Patterson Air Force Base(KFFO). But of course if any pilot chooses to fly into Wilmington feel free to do so. We will be fully staffed in all three locations, come join those in need of your support.
