Here’s something I didn’t know: You can sign up to take a tour of the Memphis airport. The Jon K. Thompson World Class Tour gives the public a close-up look at the airport and a better understanding of the role the airport plays in the local economy. Tours include a continental breakfast, presentations on several aspects of the airport, and bus tours of the FedEx World Hub and the Tennessee Air National Guard facility. Thursday, November 2 is the next tour.
