A sign of honor: American flag added to Basin Electric’s hangar

Hangar-flag

A 12-foot-tall, 18-foot-wide nylon American flag was raised July 12 in Basin Electric’s hangar in Bismarck, ND.

Mark Scheele recently had a patriotic idea.

The Basin Electric pilot/maintenance coordinator suggested an American flag be hung in Basin Electric’s hangar in Bismarck, ND.

Ryan Anderson, Basin Electric director of aviation, was immediately on board with the idea. A 12-foot-tall, 18-foot-wide nylon flag was raised July 12. Kent Picard, Basin Electric chief of maintenance, helped build the steel frame that holds the flag.

It’s common practice for hangars to hang the American flag, Anderson says. And with the values behind the Fourth of July holiday still fresh in mind, it’s a reminder of the nation’s freedom, as well as the price that’s been paid to keep it.

“The flag is a sign of support for our service men and women,” Anderson says. “It honors our country.”
