Continental Airlines - RIP

Yes, our small town of 45,000 used to be serviced by the good old DC-3's of Continental Airlines.

With progress, we now have to drive 45 miles to the nearest airport. We still have flights come in with student pilots on cross-country; people over from the Air Capitol test flying their new purchases; army helicopters; private planes coming for business meetings and various other flights. But now not even a "feeder" flight to get us to a major hub.

When our oldest son was about 18 months old, we bought a a ticket for me to Wichita (45 miles) and I held him on my lap. His dad drove over in the Buick and picked us up. This was so M. could have his first flight.
That trip may or may not have influenced him, but he's still flying today and not as a passenger.
