Upshur County -

The Upshur County Regional Airport has added more fuel services for the aircraft that land there.

It has bought a new 3,000 gallon jet fuel truck with money from a state grant.

Airport director Dick Bennett said pilots look for airports that can meet their demands and that the airport in Buckhannon will do just that.

"We try to keep our local aircraft fueled all times plus transit aircraft as they come in. With the new truck, we will not have to go get fuel so much with the older truck we did," Bennett said.

The new truck will go into service next week.

The airport currently has two other trucks: One for aviation gas and the other for jet fuel.
