EAST WENATCHEE — After more than a decade of talk, finally there was action in a $28.5 million project that will extend a runway at Pangborn Memorial Airport.

It didn’t take more than 15 minutes for the steel jaws of an excavator to crunch through the roof and flatten a manufactured home at 3247 Airway St. Tuesday. The older frame house and garage next to it at 3245 Airway took a little longer. But far less time than it took the two houses and surrounding homes to grow into a tightknit neighborhood. The two homes were owned by Ted and Barbara LeRoy and Ted’s mother, Lynas LeRoy.
