The Mineral Wells Airport is trying to get approval of the new name change of the airport to the Mineral Wells Regional Airport. The airport is large enough to land a 737, or a DC-9, so it can handle just about anything. With Weatherford needing a larger airport it seems that the most beneficial idea for both towns would be to work together for a combined operation. The Mineral Wells airport is right on the Palo Pinto and Parker County lines, so the 500 acre facility has room for some growth and could be a major plus for the entire area. This is just my opinion, but maybe one day we will see the two counties work together to help the entire area.
