Re: Is Opa-Locka Airport near Miami a waste of space

It's the closest airport to Hard Rock Stadium (Dolphins, Hurricanes) during football season for biz jets coming for that as well as a great location for special events Superbowl as well as a great reliever for some big yearly Miami events that fill up the FBOs at MIA such as the Boat show, Art Base...

Re: Is Opa-Locka Airport near Miami a waste of space

They just built a brand new FBO there, I think that gives them 3 or 4 now. It's an important business jet reliever for MIA and FLL both. For people wanting to go to Downtown MIA on their biz jet if MIA starts getting to full, it's more convenient than TMB and definitely closer than FXE. It's the clo...

Iron Maiden 2017 tour aircraft

Iron Maiden is starting their 2017 U.S. tour tomorrow in Virginia. Obviously they are not flying around in the 747 this time around. Does anyone know what they are flying around the U.S. in?
