After setting a record for the number of customers flying out of XNA in 2019, officials at Northwest Arkansas National Airport are thinking about 2020. Plans include a more intuitive website, more interaction through social media and renewed efforts to attract flyers.

We dip into our archives, from 1992 to 2018, to examine how Ozarks at Large has covered aviation stories for the past 30 years. We'll go back to a pre-XNA Highfill, to the "cloud breaking" ceremony for XNA in 1995, and spend some time in the air considering aviation tourism.
