RFD Celebrates 10 Years of Passenger Air Service

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Back in August of 2003 you could have gone to the movie theater to check out films like Radio, Finding Nemo and Daddy Day Care. Those debut movies just happen to have the initials RFD.

August of 2003 also marked a major debut at RFD. Today the Rockford airport celebrated ten years of takeoffs. A decade of destinations. In other words 10 years of passenger service. Since that first flight ten years ago nearly 2 million travelers have taken advantage of big time flights without the big time hassles of airports like O'Hare and Midway.

A quarter of a million people each year fly out of RFD to vacation destinations like Las Vegas, Orlando, Phoenix, Denver and Punta Cana
