Kansas City, here we come?

September 27, 2010 by Jill W. Tallman

The Midwest LSA Expo is over, and the Fun to Fly Remos is ready to move on. Our route today will be Jefferson County, Mo. (KJEF) for fuel, arriving anywhere from 11 to noon CST. We may stop for fuel again at Charles B. Wheeler/Downtown Airport (MKC). If weather and winds are favorable, we will press on to Wichita, Kan., before stopping for the night.

We waited out a low-pressure system that brought rains and low ceilings to southern Illinois, but that’s cleared out, and it’s time to hit the skyways. We’ll head west a bit to get around the low, then start south on Tuesday.

If you’re a Twitter user, follow Patrick Smith (@skyhawk8519). He’s got a SPOT set up that will track our progress. I’ll continue to tweet (@jtallman1959) our planned destinations and approximate ETAs. Hope to meet you along the way!

    What airport are you planning on stopping at here in Wichita? You might want to stop at Stearman Field (1K1) which is just shy of Wichita from the KC area. It’s a great GA airport with a nice restaurant with patio seating to view the runway and parking ramp. The forecast is for good weather today, so I suspect a couple of the Stearmans (with smoke systems) that are based on the field will be flying around just before sunset.

    Hi Steve!
    We are at Mid-Continent. Flew over Stearman Field in our way in. I hope to get out there; I am a fan of Stearman Field on Facebook! Thanks for the suggestion!

    I think you meant Jefferon CITY MO (KJEF) not Jefferon County.

    Sorry, not Jefferon but Jefferson.
