Here They Come
Allen & Co. guests begin their arrivals
The tarmac at Friedman Memorial Airport was a hectic place Tuesday, as chartered and private planes from around the country—or the world—began arriving in time for the annual Allen & Co. business leadership confab at Sun Valley Resort. Airport officials said that today, the landings and takeoffs number in the hundreds. This could be due in part to repeat touchdowns by smaller shuttle jets from nearby hubs like Salt Lake City. Airport manager Rick Baird said he expects about the same amount of VIP jets as during the 2007 meeting, which attracted enough corporate aircraft to fill the airport's parking ramp.
