There will be no name change for the Saint John Airport. A letter was sent to council recently by former mayor and councillor Eric Teed to change the moniker to honor Rothesay native Wallace Turnbull.
In a letter, airport officials point out it already has two displays paying respect to Turnbull for his accomplishments. Turnbull is the man who invented the varible pitch propeller and built the world's first wind tunnel which revolutionized the aviation industry.
