BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) - The Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority likes to tout the number of jobs created at the former Brunswick Naval Air Station. But the airport is growing, too.

Officials say the Brunswick Executive Airport had 1,795 flight operations through the end of October, besting the previous year by 200.

The airport boasts dual, 8,000-foot runways built by the Navy.

The buildings on the 3,200-acre property have been transformed into a business campus where more than 100 entities employ more than 1,400 civilian workers. The facility has doubled projections for new jobs since the Navy left in 2011.
