Provo Municipal Airport welcomes first commercial flight

Utah County has waited over 50 years for regularly scheduled commercial airline service.

The 99-passenger Embraer 190 finally touched down to cheers and a water cannon salute, courtesy of two lime green Provo Fire and Rescue water tankers. Deseret News
