The Walnut Ridge Regional Airport's biggest claim to fame comes from 1964, when The Beatles changed planes here (a story related by Jack Allison in my third book, Classic Eateries of the Arkansas Delta). But more people visit there today for a distinctive eatery contained within an old building and a Southwest Airlines Boeing 737 fuselage. It's known as the Parachute Inn.
