Glenn hon­oured

The Dominion Post - - World -

The Ohio air­port where as­tro­naut John Glenn ogled planes as a kid, came and went to two wars, boarded his first com­mer­cial jet and pi­loted a pri­vate air­craft un­til age 90 has now been named in his hon­our. The for­mer United States sen­a­tor, 94, said dur­ing a cer­e­mony yes­ter­day that he hoped chang­ing Port Colum­bus’s name to John Glenn Colum­bus In­ter­na­tional Air­port would in­spire young­sters to pur­sue science, en­gi­neer­ing and their own round of in­no­va­tion.
