Manchester Airport is a major regional airport. It has many flights
each day with both Southwest and United, as well as several other
airlines, with everything short of 747 jumbojets. DHL also has its
regional hub here, and it is the new HQ of the Free State Project,
which will be subletting office space this month from
1-800-Serve-em.com at the old terminal building.
As Manchester Airport was once a military base, there may be some
military bunker-type facilities here that would work for Alcor. LPNH
member and US Senate Candidate Ken Blevins is a local real estate
agency owner and can provide help with locating appropriate facilities
convenient to the airport.
I also have contacts in the funerary industry here, and can explore
trying to get their support here, if you folks want to. If we put a
bill forward, it would probably help if we can get their support before
hand, building a positive relationship from the start, and avoiding the
whole type of mess you are seeing in Arizona now.
