So who doesn’t like watching airplanes land up close? While having dinner? In a very good restaurant with lots of outdoor seating. Love this place. Next time I’ll fly my own plane in. You can taxi right up to the restaurant and park.

We had our three-year-old grandson with us and we knew the Benton Airport (Stearman Field) would be a big hit. Unfortunately, Friday, June 29, everyone else in the area had the same idea. We have never seen it so crowded. But that speaks to its...More
