Berkshire Shareholder Arrivals

Berkshire Hathaway shareholders are making their annual pilgrimage to Omaha this week. One clue is the type of aircraft you see in the metro air.

Private jets make their way to TAC Air and officials there say that by Friday the traffic will be heavy.

TAC provides maintenance for the planes, and rentals and limos for the guests.

Over at Eppley, they're preparing too, upping staff into the hundreds including more police to make sure everyone is secure all weekend.

We’re told three airlines have added more than a dozen flights and expect them to be packed.

Airport Operations Manager Tim Schmitt said, “They are swapping out smaller aircraft for larger aircraft to increase capacity and this is going to result in nearly 1,100 additional seats available this weekend."

TAC General Manager Mike Wilwerding said, “There's definitely a level of excitement with all this activity going on here, you know. It's not really an event where you really see celebrities very often but you're seeing people from all over the world."

Both Schmitt and Wilwerding say they're excited and there is a buzz around work, but it's definitely a challenge making sure all the aircraft is managed very carefully.

There’s also some early activity at TAC. They say rarely get planes on Thursday but they’ve already had some arrivals.
