ATW insider travel tip! We now have a parking pay station inside the terminal near the baggage claim exit door. Just remember to keep your parking stub with you so when you return from your trip you can quickly pay inside instead of fumbling with cash and credit cards outside in the parking exit lanes.
We’re loving the profile of the new Gulfstream G500! Like every new Gulfstream, this jet is state of the art in every way possible and will be able to fly as fast as Mach .90 (that’s 90% the speed of sound!) Can’t wait to see these coming to ATW.
Can you name the states where these airports are? We hope you get the second one correct! ;)

The Dakota Kid is one of many warbirds that were in town for AirVenture last year. This P-51 Mustang has a particularly interesting story. It was actually rebuilt from the parts of other P-51’s. It takes an immense amount of work to find, restore and often create parts for these old birds. The P-51 was a premier fighter and bomber escort aircraft used during WWII, and most would still consider it one of the greatest fighters ever built. Many have said that the P-51’s revolutionary capabilities changed the war. For perspective, the P-51, powered by a piston engine, could fly at 41,000 feet at speeds up to 440 miles per hour. There are some modern jet aircraft that aren’t capable of either of these benchmarks! #TBT

Meet Betty’s Dream, shown here on the ramp at ATW in July 2016! This B-25 Mitchell was built for the Air Force in 1945, but as far as we know, never flew for the USAF or saw combat action. These aircraft were largely used for low-level bombing runs during World War II, and are famously known for being the aircraft used in the Doolittle Raid. While a bomber at heart, these aircraft could be fitted with as many as 18 machine guns and a 75mm cannon for strafing attacks and their own self-defense. #TBT

Who’s ready to cheer on the Green Bay Packers tomorrow? When traveling to their away games, the Packers almost always use a Delta wide-body jet like the Airbus A330 or Boeing 767. Any airplane with more than one aisle in a passenger configuration is considered a wide-body aircraft. NFL teams take wide-body airplanes to accommodate the team, personnel and equipment. These jets seat up to 293 passengers and have a range of over 6,000 miles! The A330 is over 200-feet long with nearly a 200-foot wingspan. Fully loaded, these jets weigh over 530,000 pounds. Oftentimes, these airplanes fly busy international routes like Minneapolis-Amsterdam, so it’s very cool to see them do shorter trips for special occasions. Go Pack go!
