Re: St. Louis Aviation Thread - 2019

Jshank were the new gates you posted about the same ones we already know about or have you heard something else Same as before. Next summer opening for the D/E ones is just my best guess. I know they have been agreed to just not a opening date. No bids have went out for the work yet as far as I know.
