Tuesday’s interesting private Texas airport of the day…..Cook Canyon

 

Owned by Dallas energy entrepreneur Trevor D. Rees-Jones one interesting story tells of Jones’  60th birthday party at the ranch with a guest list of 900 invitees!  With 25+ private jets parked by the runway birthday entertainment was provided by the Blues Brothers and the Eagles.  Cook Canyon ranch is one of the few private airstrips in Texas which actually has its own AWOS and [probably] has its own un-published instrument approach as suggested by the surrounding magenta Class E ring depicted on the VFR chart.  You can read more about Trevor in this 2011 dmagazine article.   Jones’ net worth is approximately $5.3 billion….but who’s counting?  🙂
