Merritt Island, I assume you count the low approach at NASA Space Shuttle Landing Facility. No landing allowed!
Marco Island airport is not on the island

Oh I knew number 13 wasn't lucky. The local tribesmen say it's in the marshes and should be an island. Call sign looks correct too


I landed at KCOI and was very surprised to see busy flight school there.
