Planes will no longer be flying to Billings Logan International Airport. Starting Monday, the FAA will begin referring to the Rimrock tarmac as Billings Logan Airport.
In a press conference, Director of Aviation and Transit Kevin Ploehn gave a formal apology. "We in the administration have come to the realization that we have been considering our airport an international one solely because of flights to North Dakota. Somehow for years, we have been unconsciously treating North Dakota like it didn't belong in the United States, and that was wrong. For that we are truly sorry and we want the residents of North Dakota to know that we love them and their beautiful state."
In an anonymous interview with airport staff, it was revealed that Ploehn did not want to say anything nice about North Dakota, and will often make fun of North Dakota by calling it Mordor and mentionthat he does not want to fly the eagles there.
