It's a funny thing... I have never actually been to Meigs, I have no actual affiliation with Chicago, and yet when I read about Daley's underhanded and duplicitous tactics it makes me really quite angry!
What a complete an utter A**H***!!!!

I'm with all of you. I took my first flights with FS out of Meigs. I know that airport automatically when I see a real picture. It is a huge symbol of general aviation and a shame that it was taken. I'll have to hold with my UPSVAC buddies in hoping that a lawyer who uses Meigs regularly isnt happy either!!

No it is not a joke. That prick Daily did it. That guy is an anti aviation crusader. He has been trying to close it down for years to forward his own agenda. He has been wanting to put a casino there for years.
Someone might want to tell microsoft to change the default airport as that one no longer exsists.
