The Boston area was understandingly quite cloudy and misty as we departed KBOS during the morning after, one of the smaller airports in the region visible through the BINOVC.

The flight to St Louis saw mostly cloudy skies along the flight plan [BLZZR.BAF Q480 AIR J110 VHP.AARCH2]

We finally broke out of the cloud cover near central Illinois, just as we began receiving our first St Louis area ATIS.  KSUS, St Louis Spirit, was the first we received, and we were overjoyed to hear 6,500 scattered and 20 miles. That was an indication our slow approach would be seen by many fans on the ground! We however were to land at St Louis Lambert!

As we flew the crosswind leg of the AARCH2 arrival to SUGAR Intersection, we could see the Mississippi and Missouri rivers in the distance off our right wing. We had to look twice! Did those muddy rivers turn BLUE?

Descending here to 2200 from 3500 as we neared our FAF on the approach to 30L, downtown St Louis and it's venerable arch came into view through the haze. OH MY, the Mississippi River HAS turned blue!  This is Megascenery's  St Louis UltraRes City.

A great look at downtown St Louis from 2200 feet, and a great look at the Enterprise Center, home of the Blues!

Our VPI parking spot!  Its not often you bring the Stanley Cup to town!  When you do you get special treatment!

GO BLUES!  Incredible playoffs.  The Blues, in last place in the entire league on January 3rd, did not have home ice advantage for any playoff series on the way to the cup, and won an astonishing 10 road games during the playoffs.
