The Lear 60 that Visited Christmas Day
December 25, 2013 about 1 pm
Christmas day was the perfect day to accomplish something at AeroKnow Museum with no bothersome visitors dropping in from the sky and especially none dropping in from Springfield, Illinois. I accomplished a lot early in the day and was ready for a little diversion when a visitor stuck his head into my office and asked if I could buzz him back out onto the ramp. I hadn’t even heard it arrive!
During our brief chat I learned that the airport at Quincy had been closed because of ice-covered runways. Light snow was all that came to Springfield’s Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport, and the runways were in good shape. I don’t like to photograph visiting business jets when the travelers are present because I don’t like them worrying about the stranger taking pictures of their flying machine. When the noise quieted down in the lobby, I put on my jacket and took some pictures through the fence. The first pic was taken deliberately showing the new fence and the sign.
Soon after this picture was taken I finished my work in the office and boogied home to a tasty Christmas repast, sadly a solo event, but a fella can’t always get everything his heart desires on someone else’s birthday. Maybe next year.
Thanks for reading!
