Greenville Airport (KGRE), Greenville, Illinois (IL), USA. Includes added objects, lighting. By Jimmy R. Martin.
This was the airport I had the opportunity to rent a company Cessna Skyhawk for only the price of fuel when I worked for Mark Aero Aviation in Chesterfield MO. The aircraft was used to ferry parts back and forth to Illinois. I lived in Illinois only 30 miles from this airport.
I remember landing back at the airport one hot afternoon and the chief flight instructor was cussing his auxilary parachute. He explained to me it just did not want to re-pack and he had a sky diving class in one hour. I asked him if he ever had to use it. His answer: ONLY ONE TIME! LOL!
I had a lot of experience in that worn out Cessna: radio nav failure over clouds, rough engine, dead battery on a foggy Missouri morning.
THE REST OF THE STORY:
In 1964 I was Minister of Music and Edu for the Pleasant Ridge Baptist church and the Sunday School supplies had not arrived on time. I mentioned to the committee that the pastor's son, Charlie Dollar & I could fly down to Nashville and pick them up at my expense. On the way back our Cesna 172 started backfiring. It only got worse so I tried to radio KMWA but received no answer.
I switched to 121.5 and KCGI answered. After telling them my problem they told me KMWA's tower radio had been knocked out by lightning and to call them on their ground frequency.
After landing and letting the engine totally cool down it passed a start up test and so we took off...assuring the mechanics there I had a lot of experience in field landings.
Upon landing at the Greenville IL airport the mechanic proceeded to cuss me out, jumped into the plane and almost crashed on takeoff!
When he landed, with a white face of embarassment, he told me he would fly it back to St Louis and check the overhaul they just did.
