Feb 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis today!!
Wow, ramp full at MQJ Indy Regional for Super Bowl and parking ’em on runway 16/34. NO piston aircraft anywhere. 14 still inbound at 2:25, Gulfstreams, Citations, Challenger, Lears….! The high rollers coming in fast. I shot this pic from BAK Columbus, Indiana, 50 miles south, at noon. Stacking up there fast.

Every once in a while we get a glimpse of how much money there is floating around. I was warned not to go, but Sun Valley was sooo close to Smiley Creek (Idaho) last summer. Arriving, I found out there was a HUGE business convention. Landing was by reservation only and they were booking jets in 15 minute intervals the morning I “popped in” for fuel in my Super Cub. They squeezed me between two jet landing reserved times (I could actually taxi under some of the wings) and even waved the $100 landing fee. Whew! Next time though, I’ll listen when people tell me, “You really don’t want to go there today, Lisa.”

Thanks for the link Rusty. Pretty wild how fast they all came and went. That’s the smell of “money”, Phil!!

All the jets are gone from BAK today; sure looks empty.

Good PR for LLT!
