Jet causes buzz near airport

NORTH HAVERHILL—In terms of volume, Dean Memorial Airport in North Haverhill is no O’Hare International Airport in Chicago.
With approximately 3,000 takeoffs and landings per year, Dean Memorial is one of the smallest public airports in New Hampshire. Heck, it’s not even Lebanon Municipal, which has approximately 40,000 takeoffs and landings each year.
So, it should not come as a surprise that at least a few people in North Haverhill were astir last week as news spread that a jet aircraft with its landing gear down approached the sleepy little airport off of Route 116 in what appeared to be an attempted landing.
