CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A quick tidbit from my friends at Percival McGuire Commercial Real Estate: Charlotte Douglas International Airport has purchased 79 acres of vacant land from UPS.

The site is between a runway and U.S. 74. Purchase price: $2.5 million. Rush Dunaway and Bob Percival Sr. -- still going strong at 88 -- brokered the deal, which just closed.

The airport has been steadily buying adjoining land for future expansion.
