Bruce Willis building private airstrip in Idaho

FAIRFIELD, Idaho -- The property manager for Bruce Willis says the actor is building a private airstrip in Idaho.

Property manager Mike Grbic told The Idaho Mountain Express that Willis is building a dirt runway called Soldier Field Airport about 10 miles east of Fairfield.

Grbic says the 100-foot-wide, 8,500-foot-long runway will be finished in about a month. Documents filed with the Federal Aviation Administration include parking areas for vehicles and aircraft off an access road from U.S. Highway 20.

Some Camas County residents have complained about the project. Writer Judith Freeman says she owns a home near the airstrip and is concerned about the quality of the prairie and its wildlife.

Grbic says Willis wanted to employ locals and hired Galena Engineers and Sluder Construction to create the airstrip.
