Re: St. Louis Aviation Thread - 2019

I am not one to say one big business makes enough demand for a TATL flight but I just want to make note. With the governor involved I would hope it actually will be a big expansion. Bayer already moved their NA headquarters to STL from North Carolina. They closed their PIT office. It can do nothing...
