Creve Coeur Airport Is Midwest Flying Haven

By Carmelo Turdo
Creve Coeur Airport, a private field located in west St. Louis County, is a haven for local fliers.  The airport has a great small-town feel, while at the same time serving as a home to aircraft ranging from home-builts, antiques, warbirds, and other light aircraft.  There's a project in progress in almost every hangar, and a collection of other vehicles can also be found around the airport - bicycles, motorcycles, antique cars, carts, tugs and scooters - handy for a quick ride to a neighbor's hangar.  The airport is also home to a world-class aircraft restoration shop, Old Style Aircraft, and the Historic Aircraft Restoration Museum with over 50 restored antique aircraft.  One can be transported back in time during such events as the Waco and Monocoupe Fly-Ins, and just about any Sunday you can drop by for lunch and find a wide variety of aircraft in the pattern.  For more about Creve Coeur Airport, please visit http://www.crevecoeurairport.com/home.htmlHere are some of the aircraft seen today on the ramp and in the air:
