149 Airport control towers will be closed down across the country at small airports. The FAA says nearly every state will be affected – and 2 airports on the Eastern Shore are included in the list. The Salisbury Wicomico Airport and Easton-Newnam Airport control towers will be shut down, however the airports will remain open. The closures will occur over a 4-week period beginning April 7. This is part of the FAA’s sequestration implementation plan.
