Christopher Lynch has spent most of his life around Midway Airport.
Biographical and Professional Information
Christopher's family ran Monarch Air Service, at Midway Airport, a fixed based operator (FBO) that serviced aircraft for over six decades until it was sold in 1997. Lynch has always had a fascination with the airport’s history, and his research and collection of Midway photos and memorabilia were the basis of the documentary "Midway Airport: Crossroads of the World," part of WTTW-Channel 11’s highly-acclaimed Chicago Stories series. Lynch is a graduate of Lawrence University with a B.A. in History and Religious Studies, and also has a private pilot’s license.
