404 airport numbers

I had a little time to kill one afternoon at the office, so I started poking around online looking for statistics about airports in New Hampshire.  (Don’t ask me why. Maybe jets were departing from MHT over the building at the time.)  A few more research sessions, a couple of spreadsheets and an hour or so in inDesign later, out popped the first in what will probably become a series of “New Hampshire Numbers” infographics for the Union Leader.  Gotta have a project.
