I would fly to Weiss normally from Cotton Woods airport in Columbia, Mo. This was 1975- 1974 and I was a student at MU. I remember always landing from the north coming low over a sea of new cars parked outside the Chrysler plant. I always imagined an emergency landing on the roofs of the cars. You had to pay attention to the power lines next to I-44 on final and the hills seemed to come up fast on takeoff to the south. I usually flew a PA-28-140. Great little pilot's shop and old timers for advice. Steve Patton MU '75, Kappa Alpha

I learned to fly at Weiss in 1967 in Cessna 150s. Gene Kelley was the FBO. Later owned a 1958 Piper Tri-Pacer (N8911D) that I kept on that field until the airport at Washington, MO opened (1972). (That airplane is still airworthy and is based on the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska.) Weiss's N/S runway 18/36 had obstructions at both ends: Electric high-lines and I44 on the north end and trees and a subdivision just south of the runway. United Van lines was located just east of Weiss. They had a long N/S driveway that was frequently mistaken as the air strip. United placed a large "X" at each end of their driveway to alert pilots. Oddly, I remember very few accidents or incidents at Weiss, despite its obstructed field and rather heavy student traffic. Once witnessed a pilot land in the wrong direction (with lots of traffic in the pattern). When he fueled, the line boy alerted him to his mistake. He then taxied back out and took off in the wrong direction!

I left the airport in columbia, mo at 6:35 on march 10,1964 headed for Weiss airport in St Louis County flying a Bonanza aircraft. at take off, I heard a thump as the nose gear malfuncioned & a part dropped off at the end of the runaway. I knew the problem & headed for Lambert airport. I was told to fly in front of the control tower & when a spotlight flashed at the nose wheel they confirmed the nose gear was hanging loose. I headed for Weiss airport & after safety equipment was in place I was told to land. I made a crash landing with little fanfare bob dehn

My dad had his airplane there in the 1950's. He went there every weekend to get his pilot's license. You had to log in so many times and hours going up and flying around in order to get your licenses. It was such a great time as a kid.
