Kansas City Aviation Bureau has more than 60 private planes landed at Kansas City’s Wheeler Downtown Airport ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs AFC Championship Game with Cincinnati Bengals in just one hour from 11:00 am to noon on Sunday. I confirmed that.
Do the math: it’s an airplane every minute.
Upon arrival of the plane, passengers were taken to Arrowhead Stadium by limousine and luxury car for a 2:00 pm kick-off. Private jets coming in from the south continued to arrive within minutes of the game.
“Today is absolutely wild,” said 29-year-old service technician Trevor Cessna. “I’ve been here for four years, but I’ve only seen last year’s AFC Championship in a busy place. Now I’ve reached at least the 60’s and 70’s.”
19-year-old Owen Talis saw the plane arriving overhead and drove in from Blue Springs for a closer look. Talis also said he was a pilot.
“I was here for about 40 minutes,” he said after noon. “I saw about 50 planes coming in.”
One Twitter user just posted a map of downtown airport traffic with stunning emoji.
