The recent edits of the external link for "MacArthur Airport (official site)" (www.macarthurairport.com) led me to take a closer look at this web site, which prior to my edit on 9-Oct-2005 was previously labelled "Macarthur Airport homepage". It does not appear to be an official site, as there is no indication that it is sponsored or authorized by either the airport or the Town of Islip. Rather, it seems to be an advertising based site and there is even an advertising link on the front page. A WHOIS search of the domain name and a Google search of the phone number listed on the web site both indicate that it is operated by a company called Black Sheep Television, located in Westhampton Beach, New York. The only official airport link I've been able to track down is a Long Island MacArthur Airport page on the Town of Islip web site. Based on this information, I am updating the external links to remove the text "(official site)" and add a new link for the Town of Islip airport page. Zyxw 08:27, 19 September 2006 (UTC)

The result of the debate was PAGE MOVED - Although there's no discussion generated, it seems like a quite sensible move, well argued below. -GTBacchus(talk) 00:35, 27 September 2006 (UTC)
MacArthur Airport → Long Island MacArthur Airport – The official airport name is "Long Island MacArthur Airport" as per both FAA and the airport's owner, the Town of Islip. A normal move was blocked by an existing redirect page with that name. I doubt this really requires a discussion, but this is part of the procedure as listed in Wikipedia:Requested moves.

Dublin International Airport in Ireland (The airport from which RyanAtlantic had announced they are going to fly) has US customs and Immagration Pre-Clearance. This supposively means that MacArthur Airport will not have to build Customs and Immigration. -Braditude (talk) 15:20, 26 December 2007 (UTC)
