• Where in the World Feature 111

    Today we are happy to bring you Where in the World Feature #111.

    Feature #110 from Thomas Oftedal was, KBRD (Brainerd - Crow Wing Municipal Airport) in Brainerd, Minnesota (the county seat of Crow Wing County). Up to about a year or two ago the 'Larson' boat pictured was manufactured just down the river in Little Falls, Minnesota - and of course the might river is the Mississippi.

    Some wrong locations:

    • La Crosse (KLSE)
    • Minn./St. Paul (KMSP)
    • Grand Rapids (KGPZ)
    • Winona (KONA)

    Okay, wow! I thought that was really tough! If it were me and you guessed Minnesota I'd say you were RIGHT ON.

    Moving on to Feature #111, Ira Brotherston sends in the following clue: "Used to have Excellent direct flights from the UK, but now the only direct flights are form a few US cities, just for the high rollers".
