Re: Clayton CBD circa 1968

This site has old aerial imagery back to 1958 for most of the area.

Re: Lambert St. Louis Int. Airport [airline/hub/operations/info]

Not quite sure what you mean by the "nonstop map." When you clicked what now says nonstop service there used to be a map showing all the places that had nonstop service so you easily could see each destination on a map. Now they just list them out in a list (which they also did before). A map is ju...

Also, I meant to comment on the new logo. It was up on all the electronic signs today. I still like the old one better. They could have just changed the name in the old logo in my opinion but I guess the STL stands out in this one. I do like the new website better. The maps are different but good. I...

On the southwest 12:55 LGA-STL. 27 people. I know it's a Tuesday in winter but I wonder how often they run flights like this for very long? The plane came from STL so it isn't like it's was connecting through.

So I have been going back and reading through old posts. I started about the time AA offically closed the hub and I am to when the Tornado hit in 2011 so far. There was a ton of Delta talk. Some hub talk that obviously never happened. They were the official airline of the Rams/Cardinals and added de...

Agree on domestic side except for the one hole that seems to allude STL is a direct JFK flight.
Agree on JFK (at least for connections) but we have flights to the other two airports so if you are just going to NYC then it is filled.

Here is a pic of C/D in it's prime. Looks like a lot of MD-variants along D. This is the photo I looked at. It looks like 737 is about 10 feet wider than a MD-8x so I can see why less would fit. I still had 3d buildings turned on so that is why a couple of those jetways look funny. https://s23.post...
