The Aitkin Flyers, in coordination with the 99’s – a national group of female pilots – worked long hours Sunday to place an airmarking on the tarmac of Aitkin Municipal Airport. The blue and white “Compass Rose” was first marked, and then painted on the runway. The design, which is at several airports, is unique due to the paints chosen.
