Two Aviation Stories, one interesting, one ironic

Recommended Posts

Hi AllJust drinking coffee and reading my Chicago newspaper....two stories caught my eyes.First one is the City of Chicago using "Airport Development Fund" money to clean-up what is left of Meigs Field (moment of silence). Anybody else see the irony in that....(FAA didn't, investigation continues over the diversion of funds....)Second was the lead story on how a wounded soldier can go from battlefield in Iraq to hospital operating room in Germany in 10 hours. Lots of dedicated personnel, rotors and wings making that happen.I'm sure both stories are floating around on the web....Tim__757

I've been following the Chicago/Meigs saga on the AOPA site. It sounds like the $30,000 fine is pretty likely, but that's chump change to a crook like Daley. The million-dollar fine is probably a long shot, but if that actually happens, I won't stop laughing for a week.Interesting story about the medical evacuation system. I hadn't heard that one.
