First Lady Michelle Obama arrived at Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport around 2:30 Monday afternoon. "Well it's a great opportunity to welcome the First Lady to our community and we're very excited at the airport here to have choose us as her arrival and departure point," said Randy Curtis, Airport Executive Director.
From the airport the First Lady headed to the Tourist Development Council to speak with local officials and business leaders regarding the toll the BP oil disaster has taken on the local economy. "The ramifications I think will probably come maybe in another year or so, because the people who are not coming on vacation may not come back. And so it's the loss of business and unfortunately that's a way of life for us," said Panama City Beach Mayor Gayle Oberst
