If pigs could fly, they would probably take off and land at John Murtha-Johnstown Cambria County Airport in Pennsylvania.
Two hours east of Pittsburgh, it averages just 20 passengers a day. But its namesake, Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., a powerful and controversial member of the House Appropriations Committee, has steered some $150 million to the airport over the years. That includes $30 million for never-used capability to handle huge military aircraft and store gear for rapid deployment.
The airport also received $800,000 in stimulus funds.
