County Executive Gene McNary and two Wings of Hope officials – George Haddaway and Paul Rodgers – will take part in the ceremony at 10:30 a.m. at the airport. The county-owned airport is at Chesterfield Airport Road, south of U.S. Highway 40. The hangar will be built in an area of the airport that is part of a $6.2 million expansion program.
