London, July 13 (ANI): Bruce Willis has incurred the wrath of local critics over his plans to build his own airport near his ski lodge, the Soldier Mountain resort, in Idaho.
The ‘Die Hard’ star reportedly wants to have the private airport close to the small town of Hailey, where he moved almost 20 years ago.
But local residents have criticised the actor for eyeing entry into the aviation business, leaving managers to worry about Hailey’s own airport, Fried-man Memorial.
Both airports want 8,000ft runways, long enough for big passenger jets, but they may be too close together, said an aviation expert.
“The authorities will have to rule which is the safest. Friedman has a solid record but it is boxed into canyons. Willis carries a big stick and offers fresh employment opportunities,” the Daily Express quoted the expert as having told Britain’s The Sunday Times. (ANI)
