As a Chicagoan, I am Democrat, but do you think I will ever vote for the mayor again? HA
The city may have used airport improvement funds for O'Hare to help demolish Meigs. The FAA is investigating and may hit the city for something like $4.5 mil to repay the money and fine the city. I say hit them for all they can (and yea, I know it is coming out of my tax money) and maybe it will show the mayor he cannot do anything he wants.
I was lucky enough to land at Meigs twice before it got closed. Both times we went just to say that we did it. Who knows how many others went for that same reason. I hope everyone reading this thread had the chance to land there and my condolences to those who did not get to land there. It was neat.
What do I know? I just fly 'em.......
