Where do I start… Chicago is really a quintessential city. Very manageable, nice people, great diversity, food, etc. Only two things are really screwed up there: winter weather and Meigs Field. I will not get into the history of what happened (read it on the web) but for us General Aviation pilots, the ILLEGAL destruction of the iconic Meigs airport still gets my blood boiling every time I think about it. With the upcoming change of the Mayor, I pray that the field can be rebuild making Chicago once-again one of the best cities to visit by a small plane.
See my pictures of Meigs today. Absolutely NOTHING is going on there!
