Mase , the parent company for both of us was TransWorld Corp. . The airline was spun off when I went to work there in 84 . When we were using Meigs there was a commuter Trans World Express that operated there. We wore the same ties....

Tom, I'm sure you had days like we did, where there was freezing rain or snow heading toward Meigs, and they had no hangars, or at that time decide equipment. ( call the guys, and tell them we went to Midway !)

I remember a company that did that with deHavilland Doves, in Ohio I think.

Eewww...That outfit was supposed to keep me in coffee and food through several years of graveyard shifts in the Eighties. Our feelings about it were -- ummm -- deeply felt <g>.

Hi Jeff,
I recall that in marginal WX we’d shoot approach to KMDW then scoot on over 8 nm to Meigs Field. Had to be legit VFR under the crud X-ing over. Think I was probably make’n bout a buck-two-ninety-five an hour but reaped a ton of salt.

Regards,
Tom Charlton

Yup, only once that I recall, 1500 foot ceiling...(?). Also once, an approach to Gary, then up the shoreline.

Yep - our club members would do that, if required. Of course, the pace of a Cessna single was probably a bit easier/slower that what you were flying.
