By David Rogers. June 3, 2018. BOONE, NC — The recent heavy rains didn’t neglect High Country pilots this past week as the sometimes rushing waters ripped up the asphalt in sections of the Boone Airport runway. Four local residents and users of the airport, including Blowing Rock News photographer and local chiropractor Brad Batchelor volunteered some hours on Saturday and Sunday to patch those sections that represented a hazard to airplanes taking off and landing.
