Warm Winter Weekend Brings Variety of Aircraft to St. Louis Downtown Airport

By Carmelo Turdo
Winter is settling over the heartland and Thanksgiving is now in the rear-view mirror.  The St. Louis area experienced spectacular weather last weekend, bringing an interesting selection of home-based and transient aircraft to St. Louis Downtown Airport.  The airport is the third busiest in Illinois, the site of the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum, and home to Ideal Aviation and Jet Aviation FBOs.  A wide variety of aircraft are based there as well, and it is also a popular stop for general aviation aircraft making cross-country flights.  Here are some views from likely the last warm weekend for this year:
