Austin Straubel Airport Anyone?
Yesterday morning at the Austin Straubel airport was not a good one. Two flights to Chicago — one United and one American were delayed, the latter because of a delay in an incoming connecting flight from Marquette, Mich. Two Northwest flights, one each to Minneapolis and Detroit, were cancelled. A United flight from Chicago and a Northwest flight from Detroit also were cancelled. Now those of you a little unfamiliar with the location of Austin Straubel airport might like to know it's in Brown County, Green Bay, Wisconsin and said Austin Straubel was a Lt Colonel in the USAAF and was the first flyer from Brown County to lose his life in a flying accident. Perhaps not the best name for an airport?
