Flying High

Many of Walter’s wrestling fans turned into lifelong friendships. Each added a different dimension to our lives. One such fan was Jim Goggin. He managed a local airfield named Palwaukee Airport in Des Plaines, IL. Walter learned to fly and our family enjoyed touring the sky’s over the various homes we had lived in. Today it is a public airport named Chicago Executive Airport and covers more than 412 acres. It is the fourth busiest airport in Illinois and plays a crucial role as a reliever for the region, which includes O’Hare International Airport. It is also home to 325 aircraft, including 57 corporate jet aircraft.
