Boeing 727-200 Latest Charter Flight to St. Louis Downtown Airport

By Mark Nankivil
The Aero Experience Exclusive:

Recently, there has been a flurry of charter flights arriving at St. Louis Downtown Airport, bringing in a variety of new aircraft types. Airport Director, Bob McDaniel, has recently commented, "Now, with our recently widened and improved runway, visiting sports teams can enjoy that same close proximity and easy in and out travel. We’ve seen a growing number of Boeing 737’s, 757’s, Airbuses and MD-80s bringing hockey, baseball and football teams to St. Louis through our airport. We’re proud to provide this new capability to our customers and the region." Thanks to the generosity of Director McDaniel and the management of Jet Aviation, The Aero Experience is privileged to bring exclusive coverage of charter flights as part of our Midwest Aero Experience. Here are some views of an arriving Boeing 727-200:
