I wonder why all the mishaps, running off the runway etc., lately at the KSU airport. I use to fly out of there in the late 50`s and early 6o`s and we did not have this many problems and all we had was a dirt runway and the power lines and telephone poles were still across 59 which you had to avoid on takeoff and landing.

Marshall: I wondered the same thing. Three incidents this year sparked my attention as well.
