Less than two weeks after touching down there, Governor Anwar Choudhury, seen above in a lime green hard hat and carrying his own ubiquitous hat in his hand, returned to the Owen Roberts International Airport Friday for an official tour.

Accompanied by Civil Aviation Authority, customs and immigration officials, as well as project managers, the governor’s tour focused on the ongoing expansion of the airport, border security issues and the need to reduce wait times for passengers, especially on Saturdays.

He also chatted with visitors and met Senior Customs Officer Malachi Powery and his sniffer dog Jack, a chocolate Labrador from the U.K., the newest Customs K-9 unit member.
