Last year I was driving by the Rochester, Minnesota, airport and I saw a Tristar land. This was rather a large plane for that airport, so I got off the highway to get a closer look. By the time I got there it had taxied to the terminal and a several limousines were taking the disembarking passengers. The plane was "Saudia", painted in white and green. I suppose it was bringing people to the Mayo Clinic. Can those planes fly direct to the middle east from Rochester? Peter Wezeman, anti-social Darwinist "Carpe Cyprinidae"
