Aviation Adventure Day at Kansas City's Downtown Airport was attractive to car nuts and aviation buffs
We were over there on Saturday morning, and the conditions were a little less than ideal. It was raining, or trying to rain the whole time we were there, and when it wasn't raining, it was so humid it might as well have been. As a result, the car count was a little lower than what we saw there last year, at least during the time we were there. I suspect that business picked up later in the afternoon, though.
By the 1960s, the FAA declared the airport as the "most dangerous in the country," because planes had to dodge the skyscrapers in downtown Kansas City and Quality Hill when they were landing and taking off.
So, here we go with the slideshow. You don't have to get wet. You don't have to sweat. All you have to do is click through the pictures below.
