    Default Coast-to-Coast Leg #3: St. Louis to Kansas City

    We're setting off on our third leg of our coast-to-coast journey after another plane swap, this time we will be flying the Grand Caravan. We departed St. Louis Downtown airport in the early evening and chased the sunset on our journey to Kansas City. We arrived at Wheeler Downtown airport just as the sun was setting.

    Coming in a little high, but I was distracted by the nice view of the downtown area. Also, according to the big X's painted on the runway, runway 3 in apparently closed, but it had approaches listed for it so who knows

    Parked for the night. We will continue our journey in the morning

    Thanks again for viewing! The next leg is the only one I haven't decided on the destination, but I'm thinking somewhere in Colorado, possibly Telluride. If you have any recommendations on airports I should check out in that area, let me know!

    Outstanding series of shots and narrative Chris. The other airport in Colorado I'd checkout would Aspen/Pitkin County (KASE)

    I agree to both statements! Great series and Aspen is a rich as well as fun airport. Having said that, and I've RW skied near both as well as done sim postings of each on this site. I am really enamored with the scenery around Jackson Hole Wy! You might want to go there as well!

    Keep up that enjoyable flight!!

    Wonderful! Hey, I noticed you have a small leak in your nose gear strut. Might want to get that checked out. -- Bob
