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.

However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]

  • Tame that recoil - November 25, 2014
    You don’t have to put up with nasty recoil when you’re hunting. Even if you’re hunting our state’s bigger animals, like elk, moose, or even bison, today’s technology can take a lot of the sting out of your hunting rifle. A friend told me he developed a bad flinch while sighting in his .300 Win […]
