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.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
