LEE COUNTY'S BOX FUEL STATION
September 1, 2013
George Roberts, manager of the Lee County, SC Butters Field sent us this image of their new U-Fuel Box Avgas fuel system, also described in this recent article from Flying magazine. As can be seen in the image, the airport has used the large flat external surfaces of the fuel system's fire-rated enclosure to describe the airport's namesake, WWII B-17 pilot Major Raymond Butters. This local hero lived near the airport in retirement and was responsible for numerous improvements, which included securing the modest funding needed for this 24-7 self-service fuel system.
