Editor’s Note: The photos of the Fernandina Beach Airport Terminal were taken yesterday and show a busy worksite. According to Chris Whelan, “Most of the front and back lobby windows have been installed.” In addition exterior painting, grading for the parking lots, as well as the ramp for the starboard wing.
