Oprah's cruise vacation was the talk of the town here in Rockford, Illinois. She sent the 1500 staff and family members to Spain in 5 chartered planes that left our airport last Saturday afternoon and evening. We are approximately 90-100 miles due west of Chicago. It was noted that Oprah did not join them at the airport as she was "leaving from a different destination." Of course she has her own personal jet. The director of the airport was so happy to provide customer service to all and it was a record number of passengers in our airport for one day.
