Sioux City SUX, And That’s OK
The True or False trivia statement for August 19, 2013 was:
Iowa has an airport with a code name that SUX.
The answer is …
“By all accounts, Sioux Gateway Airport, serving Sioux City and the surrounding area in northwest Iowa, northeast Nebraska, eastern South Dakota and far southern Minnesota, is a fine facility.
But the three-letter identifier — the three capitalized letters that appear on baggage-claim tags, that are used nationwide to refer to the Sioux City airport, that pilots and air-traffic controllers use to designate Sioux City — has long been a headache for the town.” ~ CNN :: Sioux City SUX, and that’s OK
