Who knew there is (or was) a primitive

high grass landing strip along US 41

just East of Port Manatee in Palmetto

It claimed the high cotton title of

"Airport Manatee" as if it deserved

Yesterday they got some press

when a small plane carrying 4

unlucky folks crashed into a

hanger instead of taking off

I guess the winds must have

been coming from that direction

3 escaped with minor injuries

The pilot was hospitalized

The "Airport" had a 6 segment hanger

that housed storage areas where people

stored their planes and other stuff

Four of the units burnt down including

a few of the airplanes

Although Sarasota's "SRQ"

is no bundle of fun I'll

stay with it for now
