    Had the opportunity to fly to St Louis, 1H0 Creve Coeur Airport on business. Found a very interesting airport, fly in, and museum. Here's an article I wrote about the trip for EAA1252 newsletter.

    here's a .pdf version - hope that's ok with the original author. Gary? I see picture quality degraded on the conversion from .doc to .pdf ...

    Another nice article and GREAT photos Gary. I wish you'd write for my EAA Chapter newsletter. :yes:

    Are you the editor for your newsletter? If so, how do you get members to give you information about themselves and their airplanes to put in the newsletter?

    Wow. :hairraise: I need to give my CFI a big wet kiss for training me to get down to pattern altitude several miles out.

    I checked, checked and rechecked the sectional.

    Sheepishly checking my mailbox....

    The issue for me was, the Sectional chart effective December 22,2005 and valid until 7/6/2006 does not reflect the change. Nor was there any mention of a NOTAM in the briefing.

    Ditto for me. I didn't see it on any DUATS briefing and the AFSS briefer didn't mention it.

    There was a notice posted on the bulletin board at the aiprort where I refueled on the way out but I thought it was a proposed change like Cinci's attempts to raise the top.

    It would be nice if they had the notice on the ATIS umtil the new charts came out but I suppose that could drive local pilots nuts, and besides the airliners wouldn't care and who else is there?

    It's also a pretty tight squeeze. Why didn't they just make it to the ground and just close those silly little airports?
