I was driving westbound on I-70 yesterday just to the east of Kansas City (about 30 miles west of the city, just before the Jackson County line) And I saw an all white plane(jet) sitting out on the grass,in front of what looks like a small airport, as I quickly glanced up, I saw several planes parked, including an old United Express plane, in the old orange and blue colors, (with the E on the tail)
Did I see a mirage, or is this a place to visit. I know that there is a Airline museum at the downtown KC airport.
Does anyone have any idea what this place is, the name, etc.
Cookies are the Gateway pastry. They lead to Éclairs and Bear Claws.

The Airline History Museum of Kansas City is based at MKC (Kansas City Downtown Airport), and has 3 aircraft: A Lockheed L-1049 H (painted as a G) Super Constellation which is airworthy, as well as a Martin 404 and a DC-3 which is undergoing restoration. All are painted in TWA period colors.
This was originally called Save-A-Connie. The Constellation still does airshows around the country.
