Liked your explanation of the "Day In History" Charlie! Just shows you can read an old news story and not understand half what they are saying without the proper context!

Here is the article from the 1888 Mining Journal:

Is it Springtime yet?

I love da yooper loop. The picture makes me think there is a rally going on.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Tuesday, February 17, 2009 - 11:18 am:

I like that loop to Bob, the only problem is that I am usually heading back home from the Keweenaw when I hit that curve.

The first time I took Bill to Lake Linden,after we met, it was kinda of funny telling him how to drive that loop and going on and off the bridge and who goes first at the stop at the end of Shelden Ave. It was funny. After 10 yrs. (not that long) he got the hang of it.

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Tuesday, February 17, 2009 - 02:16 pm:

Least "The Loop" isn't like the British roundabouts; you get on one of those things and you may be going in circles for a while, especially in London during rush hour!!!

There is a roundabout near here and everyone (except me) in the office avoids it at all costs; sometimes driving 20 miles out of their way. I guess it might be too confusing to figure out. ;-)

Ontario started to install a lot of traffic circles (as we called them) during the time I lived there. They are easy to get used to if you force yourself, but they do require a bit more aggressive driving (changing lanes, for example) than I'm used to in the UP nowadays.

Also, that view of Copper Falls Bluff has really made me want to get up there again! But I have to wait until the weekend...

Hey, that's a real jet at the airport!


FRNash/PHX, AZ (Frnash) on Tuesday, February 17, 2009 - 05:16 pm:

From their current flight schedule, it looks like NWA/Mesaba is now regularly using the Canadair Regional Jet CRJ into and out of CMX! (Except daily flights #2792 ARR CMX 1:57PM & #2795 DEP CMX 2:20PM which are still using the SAAB-SF3 turboprop.)

What, in the present economy? Well ya can't knock it!

Shades of the old Republic Airlines days … I hope the CRJ is here to stay!

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Tuesday, February 17, 2009 - 05:32 pm:

A real jet, chuckle? My son was flown down to Detroit on one of those in either late Oct or early Nov 2007 for a job interview, and NW had been flying those longer than that, actually. (Yes, he got the job.) It is a decent plane, true. I think there may only be one flight a day in and out of Houghton, with those, though, but they sure beat props!

What else can I say? More great pics.

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Tuesday, February 17, 2009 - 09:45 pm:

We have some roundabouts or traffic circles in Lansing and surrounding areas now. I think they are very confusing to the older generation...uh, I've heard that...yeah, that's it, I've heard that.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, February 17, 2009 - 10:25 pm:

Meant to wish my brother, Tim, a very happy birthday today!!!

By Russell E. Emmons (Russemmons) on Wednesday, February 18, 2009 - 12:58 am:

Speaking of Republic Airlines days---- There was a Republic Airline jet (727?) sitting on the runway when we were there at CMX in 1985. They were regular scheduled flights then I'm sure. RCW would know!

By Daveofmohawk (Daveofmohawk) on Wednesday, February 18, 2009 - 02:48 pm:

Most of the airlines are now trending towards more flights with smaller planes; mainly turboprops, it's more economical than less flights with larger planes.
