10 Nov., 2009 -- Springfield

I went to an FAA Safety Seminar this evening in Springfield, and
there was a discussion about the new Branson Airport, and safety regarding
its proximity to Harrison and Point Lookout, and the radar coverage, etc.
When I made my airline reservations to Vegas last week, the booking service referred
to Branson as BKG. However, the official FAA identifier is BBG. It seems
that there is an airport on a tiny island out in the Pacific near Hawaii that
already has BBG, so for airline booking purposes, Branson is known as BKG.
I don't know of any other airport that has two identifiers. Huh.

Made a short trip through Bass Pro, there is a lot of remodeling going on inside, getting ready for Christmas, probably. Didn't seem to bother the fishies, nor the ducks or turtles.

Hey, Grant! Here's your street...
