Why do huge Menard's company jets fly into Marquette several times a month.
And why does Menard's have a fleet of at least 9 airplanes - including several big jets.
The big jet that visits regularly is a beauty - 1998 Raytheon Beachcraft 1900D with 19 seats (Yes 19 seats)- Flight Tail Number N535M.
I noticed the swanky jet - one of several owned by Menard's - is constantly landing at Sawyer International Airport and always on the move flying to airports around the Midwest including Chippewa County in the U.P.
This has caused many rumors around the airport.
I can not believe that they are bringing 19 people into Marquette on each visit.
This seems like huge waste of money - and its one of at least three big jets and six other planes.
This fleet of jets/planes probably costs millions each year.
