[FINISHED] 31DEC20 / 2100Z - New Year's 2021 Trip to NYC @ KSTL


Hello folks, welcome to my event. On December 31st, it is New Year’s Eve which is the day before New Year’s 2021. Usually, we travel to NYC to celebrate New Year’s by joining the crowd and counting down to New Year’s and dropping the big ball to shout out Happy New Year’s. However due to COVID, I decide to create an event for us to fly to NYC from my hometown to virtually celebrate New Year’s. So we will be leaving St. Louis and making a connecting stop at Charlotte and then we will layover and switch terminals but with the same aircraft to head to New York JFK Airport.
