    It’s kind of a shame STOLports never really took off (bad pun, I know).

    One of my sisters used to live in an apartment complex that was partially built on land that was once a STOLport near Clear Lake City, a suburban part of Houston around EFD and the Johnson Space Center. When it was in service, it had commuter flights to IAH, a precursor to COEX service at EFD a few years later. Now the former site is partly under an apartment complex, and partly being used for something like an auto parts store. Those flights used a taxiway at IAH to takeoff, since it was closer to the terminals than the actual runways.

    Is that weak excuse for a race track still open?

    It also was used by corporate flights, for years. Not just the time of Shawnee Airlines.

    I-4 is the worst! As a resident of central Florida, I have to deal with it on a regular basis. Any time we drive to Orlando to catch a flight, there is an accident which brings all traffic to a halt. Every. Time. We started booking a hotel by the airport after a missing one flight.

    And in the ’60s you could have taken a helicopter from LAX to Disneyland.
