Joplin Airport Field Trip

Wed., October 14th

7331 N Hwy 43, Joplin

Meet at the Main Terminal

Any ages

We will be joining in on a tour with another group. 

We will go through the boarding process, including some security before getting on a plane to see the inside.  We will see luggage pick-up and be driven to the hangar.  After that, they will explain how the airplanes work and show us a special fire truck.  When the tour is done, there is a museum to see.  It houses many cool things like a black box, a flight simulator, and bombs.  They will also have a Goodie Bag for participants.

This sounds like a fantastic and fun opportunity.  I hope you will clear your schedules and join us!  Please let me know A.S.A.P. if you will be coming and how many in your party.

After the Field Trip, those who want to can eat lunch together.  Jeannie and I will look at some options for this if there is any interest.  So please put in your vote!

A BIG THANK YOU to Jeannie for organizing it for us!
