John Bendig submitted this photo and note: “My 1974 Maule M5-220C based at Erie International Airport (KERI) in Pennsylvania. The plane is hooked up to a heater in the engine cowling and battery minder. The airport does not support GA privately owned hangars and does not plow the taxiway to private hangars, so we must put our planes in storage for the winter. Even if you are equipped with skis, you are not allowed off the runways.”
While activity plummeted 40% at Minneapolis International Airport in 2020 due to the pandemic, it was up 19% at Flying Cloud Airport, thanks to flight training and recreational flying.
