Friday’s interesting private airport of the day…. 6666 Ranch

 

Scary name but it’s pronounced “Four Sixes”  6TE6 (BTW – I was once assigned 6666 for a transponder code…it was my first long cross country flight….thanks ATC!)   The Four Sixes produces legendary Quarter Horses and Black Angus breeding stock.  You can visit their Facebook page here.   Founded by Captain Samuel “Burk” Burnett in 1868 – when he purchased 100 head of cattle wearing the “6666” brand from Frank Crowley of Denton, Texas – Burnett Ranches (6666 holding company) today encompasses 275,000 acres near Panhandle and Guthrie.  More info about the Ranch on their web site here.
