Airport identifiers–some of them, well, SUX. Rather than fight it, Sioux City, Iowa, is leveraging the unusual identifier for Sioux Gateway Airport/Col. Bud Day Field.
Airport Operations Manager Elizabeth Smart, CM, ACE (not sure what those stand for–but at least it’s not SUX), reminded me in a letter this week that SUX is a great place and we may want to feature it in our next “A Day in the Life of America’s Airports” story. Could be. SUX has an Iowa Air National Guard unit on the field, air carrier service, and a full-service FBO, as well as corporate operations for companies such as Tyson Fresh Meats. You can see the details in AOPA’s Airport Directory Online. It looks like a nice airport.
Not flying near Sioux City anytime soon, but want the T-shirt? See all of the cool Fly Sux stuff online.
