A friend of mine flies for a courier service that is based at MKC. He's in and out of there five days a week..

I didnt realize boat and gun shows were held there. There is so much that has happend and changed there at MKC I guess there is still alot I dont know about...
Actually the boat and gun shows - which do happen at least annually - are held downtown in Bartle Hall. Most if not all conventions in KC are held there now.
|Quoting L1329II (Reply 16):|
know over the last 20 years or so that at least a half dozen potential commuter startups have attempted to serve MKC but because of its proximity to MCI its not worth it.

Great museum at the old KC Muncipal airport. Called the Aircraft History Museum. A number of retired TWA folks work there. This is where the Connie from "Aviator" is based.
Worth the time if you are ever in KC.

I grew up in the flight path of what we called the "Downtown" airport. I remember when President Jimmy Carter flew right over my house. It was pretty exciting. That was always a dangerous airport for the bigger jets. Skyscrapers on one side and the Water works park hill on the other.
