The little airport in far Upstate New York, just 25 or 30 miles from the Canadian border, made news last year and this year with its ambitious plans, plans that were undaunted by the failure of Big Sky, the regional carrier. The airport even persuaded New York State transportation authorities to put French-language signs along the north-south highway to Montréal. Now it’s begun a newsletter in French. This francophone effort includes something we didn’t know about and find entertaining: links to Coastal Express, a trucking company that will haul your car from Plattsburgh to Florida - and back. (And you thought we just liked pictures of trucks!) All in all, for an airport that's just coming up on its first anniversary as a commercial airport (it used to be a US Air Force base), not too shabbe, as the French don't say.
