What Bert Has To Say About Wichita Metro Area

It may surprise some, but Wichita is the largest city in Kansas (most of Kansas City is in Missouri). Surrounded by wheat fields and oil-industry facilities, this traditional Midwestern city has a diverse agricultural and industrial economy. In part because of its invulnerable central U.S. location, World War II aircraft design and production facilities were located in the area. Today aviation firms like Beech, Cessna (Raytheon), Stearman, Lear (Bombardier), and Boeing all have plants nearby, and there are numerous supporting precision parts and engineering firms in the area.
