Salt Lake International Airport

Propeller Race

When my older brother and I were young, our parents used to take us down to St. George to visit our grandparents. We flew on the old silver SkyWest EMB 120 Brasilias, and after the main cabin door would close, my brother and I would have competitions to see whose propeller would start first, and his would ALWAYS start first. To this day I always thought that my parents and him and the pilots would rig it to happen every time. We always talk about how when the new airport is complete, how we’ll be able o point out where the little prop planes used to park!
