G.D. Fronabarger captured himself reflected in a window while take a picture of a group of people at Municipal Airport, in this undated photo. He took two photos. It might have been the airport board.

  • That's a slimmer Frony than I remember. He hadn't switched to 35mm yet.

  • Wimpy's Skyway, I ate many meals there and had quite a few Cherry Cokes and Cherry Vanilla 7ups.

    Great photo. One shot Fronny probably pulled this photo when he saw he has gotten his reflection in the photo, very unprofessional.

    I think the lady in the reflection is Marvin Rains' Mother. It could be Mrs. Blattel who was the mother of one of our flight instructors.

    Two guys to the left of dad is Turk Moore, he was the Ozark Airline station manager.

    Rush Limbaugh Jr is across from Turk.

    Is the guy on the right in the photo Al Spradling?

    In the first photo against the wall and in the second photo is Lori Stahly.

    Notice the phone booth, ten cents for a phone call. Cab company number on the wall, Edgewater55533.

    The fenced in area was the holding area for passengers, visitors and tourists to watch the Ozark DC-3 land, disembark, embark, luggage off and on, refuel, fire up (literally), taxi out and depart.

    They were probably using the turbo prop Fairchild F-27 by this time as you can see Runway 10-28 in the background of the photos.

    This may have been a board meeting regarding the runway dedication?
