    Taken off of fb.

    Apparently, this can happen in the near future.

    Initial talks between Dumaguete City Mayor Ipe Remollo and Mr. Hans Sy, owner of SM Malls seem to agree on terms that would replace the old Sibulan airport with a new SM City branch once the new Bacong airport will be complete and functional.

    Somehow, Ayala Lands, rumored to be also in contention, may have lost the bid.

    Will wait for further details. Stay tuned..

    I would take this with a grain of salt, What would the Dumaguete Mayor be talking to SM malls about when the airport is located in Sibulan, there for Dumaguete has nothing to do with it..

    ..Note the outline of the runway in red, exactly north south... Pic taken in the Engineers office, Bacong Municipal Hall.
    At 76, i doubt i'll be around when the first plane lands (i was about to say "takes off," but then it occurred to me that it's gotta git here first...

    I noticed a river that shows on the plan runs across the runway. Thank you for sharing Edward.

    They will probably just put up a dam. It is really just a creek, the main line it branches off of that continues toward Dumaguete runs right behind our house and it is very small. Damming the one that crosses the runway should not be much of a problem.

    Or a pipe under the runway .... they are going to have to excavate for the runway anyway, wouldn't be hard to put a decent size pipe in.
