    Petit Jean Fly In (MPJ, Arkansas) 6/10/2006

    Here is the latest information on the Petit Jean Fly In:

    There seems to be a bit of a pattern forming here... I've just found out that Petit Jean is a DAYTIME only airport. The state is having to replace the lights or something like that. Good thing we are in summer time right?

    I would recommend that you make sure to fly a circle or two around the area when you arrive and take in some of the scenery (or you will be like me the first time I landed here, taking it in while you should be planning to land the plane)

    Here are some useful links (you may have to copy and paste these links into your browser):

    Lunch (whatever time we decide that we want to do lunch) will be at the Mathers Lodge. I will have 2 sign up sheets. One will be for those interested in going over to the Auto Museum, the other will be for checking out the hiking trail that leads away (and back) to the Lodge. I'll have a van for us, and we may have to make 2 trips to get everyone where we need to go, but we should be OK. In case you are curious, I have 'bus driver' experience from back when I was in college...

    Take my cell phone number with you so that you can contact me if the van is away from the airport when you arrive: (501) 281-2967.

    Comments, Suggestions, or just to let us know you are coming? You can post a reply to this thread. Hope to see you Saturday.

    I'm still planning to be there if the WX cooperates.

    Not sure if I'll fly up Friday or Saturday.

    I will be there Saturday about 9 or so. May have my nephew with me.

    I have an unofficial count from the posts and emails of 18 people. Now, if the weather will cooperate.

    My uneducated WX eye (limited to looking at the surface WX imagery on the AOPA site) says it's looking good for KMPJ for the weekend.

    Looks like I'll fly up tomorrow and back on Saturday.

    Cloyd, we plan to arrive at 4 Mike 4 mid to late afternoon. Say 3:30 to 5:00. We already have a rental car.

    Can you get into Best Western also? Phone is 501 745 4700.

    We'll be happy to meet you on arrival and spend the evening swapping lies.

    Bo & the Redhead.
