UMSL is really close to the airport, so when I’m walking to and from either my car or the Metrolink, I get to watch airplanes land. For some reason I never see any take off. I guess that means that St. Louis is where airplanes come to die.
It does make me a little sad, though. We used to be a big important airport with flights all over the world in big jets. You don’t see any big jets anymore. No 767s, 747s, or 777s. No big Airbuses. You see three kinds of airplanes. 737s, MD-80s, and little regional jets. And honestly, that’s just not as much fun.
I also don’t think that you can park under the path they take to land and watch them fly over you anymore, because you might shoot them down.
Why do all good memories have to be ruined by things changing?
