The director of aviation at Grand Junction Airport has been fired while the Feds continue to investigate the regional Airport. The Daily Sentinel reports the Grand Junction Airport Authority Board gave no reason for dismissing Rex Tippetts on Tuesday. The FBI is conducting an investigation into unknown airport affairs and has said only that its probe concerns allegations of fraud. Federal agents executed search warrants at the airport’s offices and seized documents in November.
