The field remained closed most of the day but did finally open up early evening. Everyone seemed to take it in stride and spend the extra free time sloshing around visiting fellow aviators and making ... Read More »

I’ve landed at airports all over central and eastern America, and just as... Read More »

Or so I believed, until I my hubby gave me a small si... Read More »
