Tonight we share a newsworthy local memory and a quick peek back at our rapidly evolving world.
To wit . . .
A recent thoughtful note sent our way remembers stuntman legend Evel Knievel and his brief stint in a former local airport.
Here's the word . . .
"Fairfax Municipal Airport Kansas City, Kansas NOW the new GM plant occupy the former site 3101 Fairfax Trafficway.
"These photos are copies of a 4 page flyer published back in the 60s all about the airport. My dad was a radio/electronics technician . . . Early 70's Evel Knievel flew his plane to Fairfax and my Dad worked on it.
"I noticed the thread saying if any of Tony's readers know about what absorbed into Fairfax airport please let TKC know. So, I scanned the flyer quickly for u . . ."
And so . . .
THANKS TO THIS AWESOME TKC READER FOR A GLIMPSE OF THE NOT SO DISTANT KANSAS CITY AVIATION PAST!!!
Take a look . . .
As always . . . Developing . . .
