Mississippi Delta AIR TOURS

Delta Sights
Link to Visit the Delta

Whether you're a tourist who wants to know more about the region or a local who wants to take pictures of the family farm, you will be smitten with the views at 3,000 feet: a tapestry of crop lands, catfish ponds, and river bends.

Because Cleveland Municipal Airport (KRNV) is only 17 miles east of the Mississippi River and central to most things Mississippi Delta, it's an excellent spot to begin and end a "flighty conversation" on a broad range of topics—catfish, the Blues, steamboats, bird migrations, King Cotton, oxbow lakes, levees, indian mounds, the Civil War, 16th-section lands, farming, crop dusting, hunting camps, Mark Twain and Hernando de Soto.
