There’s worse places to be grounded.
I can’t think of any offhand, but I’m sure they exist.
San Luis Obispo
lol, yeah but I have a warm bed waiting for me there.
As far as I know.
As a former resident of Rapid City (former not by choice, I would like to return there someday), I can certainly think of a lot worse places to be…like maybe Newark, New York, Boston, LA, San Fran or just about anywhere for that matter. Rapid City is a great place. Ever been to Mt Rushmore?
Doesn’t look like the 787 is moving to “Rapid” in that city?
Laredo, Texas well at least you can go across the border and see the DonkeyLady
Fargo, ND. Nothing but flat emptyness for miles around. At least in Rapid City you have the badlands nearby.
I went to the matinee once, but the donkey had a headache and couldn’t make it.
But then you have the stigma of the worst US-based ICAO code in the country.
Honestly… what were the FAA and ICAO thinking for coming up with that LID?
