Santa Cleared For Approach In Jackson

santa flight

Wyoming’s busiest airport has made special provisions tonight to accommodate the Jolly Old Man as he makes his rounds in northwestern Wyoming.  Airport Manager Ray Bishop says Santa filed his flight plan some days ago and has been given clearance tooperate in Jackson Hole’s airspace.  Bishop says, “We’ve cleared all the airspace from about 9:00 on, so he’ll have all night to work.  We told him to come and go as he needed to get the job done here in Teton County.”  Bishop says in doing so, the airport has given Santa one special advisory being as the Jackson airport has the distinction of being the only commercial airport within a national park.  He says he has urged Santa to be careful about any undue noise in the park (keeping his “ho ho ho’s” to a minimum) but also since there are eight tiny reindeer, he says the airport – used to being sensitive to wildlife here – wants Santa to relay special greetings to them as well.  Bishop says the flight will be running heavy since there have been so many good little girls and boys in the area this year.  Bishop says accommodating Santa in this way allows the airport to share warm holiday cheer with the communities it serves.

  • A lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
