Airport manager Penni Loomis walks around one of the new hangars at Deer Park Airport on Oct. 25. Although the airport is still a quiet country airstrip, the building of private hangars is booming. At least 16 hangars have been built in the past five years, and Loomis expects 20 more by the end of 2008.
