Re: Cleveland Aviation Thread - 2021

Does any on here work ATC? I was walking the pooch around 11:20 am today and there were 2 four engine jet aircraft (clearly visible contrails) flying in formation westbound. Don't think they were B-1's as there was no noise but they were pretty high. The trailing aircraft changed position from the ...

It's unfortunate, but I think we can all agree that history will repeat itself and the city will choose alternative #1. It's the cheapest and is basically a copycat of the masterplan from 10 years ago. I was personally a huge fan of #4 but of the 3 they chose to continue with, I am hoping for #6. A ...

I feel like this is a huge opportunity to turn it into a cargo hub, or at least expand exponentially. In my opinion, the IX Center was a huge roadblock to the future of CLE and I think now is the time to act.

The only time it really matters is when BKL is on 6s. They have to do the ILS 24R circle 6L. Minimums are higher for that approach.
