For 27 years Mark Gubin has scared the hell out of aircraft passengers arriving at Mitchell Airport in Milwaukee. Gubin’s building is right in the flight path of Mitchell International Airport. As a joke, in 1978, he painted a sign in 6 feet tall letters on top of his flat rooftop, welcoming new arrivals to Cleveland.
Over the years, Gubin has touched up the letters in whatever paint he had available, while always being thrilled at the thought of passengers looking out the aircraft windows during their final descent to Milwaukee. Image: Screenshot/Michael Sears/2015
