75 YEARS OF FLIGHT AT FSD

In 1939 Mid-Continent Airlines brought two daily flights to Sioux Falls: a southbound flight departing at 12:10 p.m. to Sioux City, Omaha and Kansas City, and a northbound flight leaving at 2:21 p.m. for Huron, Aberdeen, Bismarck and the Twin Cities – placing the city within overnight distance from any air point in the country. The cost was $11.75 for an airline ticket to the Twin Cities and $8.85 for a ticket to Omaha.
