Documents show Bruce Willis's airport will be large, busy

KETCHUM, Idaho (AP) - Federal Aviation Administration documents show that a central Idaho airport being built by actor Bruce Willis will be larger and busier than officials originally expected.

Willis's Soldier Field airport is located about 10 miles (16 kilometers) east of Fairfield.

The Mountain Express reports Camas County officials claimed Willis's airport would be minimally used and would have a small impact on nearby residents.

According to FAA documents, the airport will base about 20 aircraft, and could have about 500 landings each month.

The airport's runway will be made of concrete, and not dirt like county leaders and reports previously said. It also would be fitted with high-intensity lights.

A civil engineer who worked for Willis when the documents were submitted says the actor hoped the airport would eventually serve the public.
