"Doesnt seem like Daley would EVER allow that, expecially now. If closed down Meigs for safty conserns im sure he wont let an L1011 come in to MDW
." - Bobs89irocz
Ok I know it's off topic but it needs to be said. I'm so sick and tired of listening to people believing this bull that Meigs was closed for safety reasons. Daily wanted it closed long before 9/11 but he couldn't make it happen. It was finally closed because he exploited a national tragedy to get what he wanted. Keep in mind people that it WASN'T CLOSED, IT
WAS DESTROYED!!! He went in there in the middle of the night and demolished it. It makes me sick to think that someone would be so cold hearted as to use a tragedy that affected and even destroyed so many people's lives for his own personal gain.
Secondly, I just wanted to comment about the C-5's into MDW
. I find it very hard to believe that they are able to get a C-5 out of there. I have in the past however, seen military cargo aircraft at Midway that look almost identical to the C-5 but it is much much smaller. I don't remember the name of it but I think it's the star-some thing or other. The C-5 is a MASSIVE aircraft and anyone who has ever stood next to one will agree. So I don't think it is a C-5 MDW
but rather it's little brother. I will say this though. If they really have had a C-5 at MDW
getting a L-1011 in there would be a walk in the park.
