A piece of the Altus Quartz Mountain Regional Airport has gotten a little bit of a face-lift thanks to the volunteer work of the Ninety-Nines Oklahoma Chapter. The Ninety-Nines are a non-profit organization founded in 1929 by 99 women pilots. They volunteer their time and provide women scholarships in order to promote aviation. One service they provide and are well known for is painting “Compass Roses” on airports for only the cost of paint. A Compass Rose points out magnetic north, south, east and west. It is a necessity to aircraft allowing pilots to properly set their magnetic compass by moving the aircraft over the Compass Rose and pointing it in a certain direction. “The Oklahoma Ninety-Nines don’t just draw arrows on the ground but create a beautiful piece of artwork” stated Greg Camp, Airport Director. Four women of the Ninety-Nines along with Greg Camp completed the functional work of art on Saturday Oct. 9, and after allowing the paint to cure for a few days now have it in operation.
