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.

Any help!

Thanks  Smile

This is not a museum, no.
I've seen DHC-7s of Gulfstream parked up there as well as Metros in United Express paint scheme. I believe it's an airfield of some sort with aircraft storage.

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.
