Wichita Mid-Continental Airport to go green

The latest airport planning to up its green cred is Wichita Mid-Continental Airport in Kansas.

The airport plans to add miniature wind turbines similar to the ones installed at Boston Logan International Airport earlier this year. The small turbines will be placed on the brand new, four-level, 1,600-spot parking garage, and will generate enough power to provide light for all levels. The turbines will need to be built specially so that their noise does not disrupt travelers using the garage or interfere with radio controls for pilots and air traffic controllers.
