In this edition of the series, we feature Creve Coeur Airport in St. Louis County, MO. The privately-owned airport is home to many types of general aviation aircraft, but is especially known for being a haven for antique aircraft. The renowned Olde Style Aircraft restoration facility is located on the field, along with the equally revered Historic Aircraft Restoration Museum featuring over fifty immaculate flying antique aircraft.
The concrete runway 16/34 is 75' x 4500', and there is significant ramp space for transients. There is also a turf runway 7/25 that is 220' x 3120'. The airport is host to the annual American Waco Club Fly-In, Monocoupe Club Fly-Ins, Stearman Flight, and monthly meetings of the Missouri Aviation Historical Society.
The following photos show the variety of general aviation and vintage seen at Creve Coeur Airport recently. Included in the selection are a 1928 Waco ATO Taperwing (Baby Ruth), Eric Downing's Douglas Skyraider and members of the Stearman Flight. We thank the airport management and aircraft crews for their hospitality.
