Things have changed a lot in 60 years.  I got my pilot's license in 1958 and, in July of that year, took my wife and two sons on a weekend visit to Memphis, landing at MEM.  The young kids enjoyed the zoo and playing on the cannons in the parks.  My wife and I enjoyed eating Shrimp Creole at Madison Seafoods, downtown.

Even if I still had my Medical Certificate, I wouldn't want to fly into that mess today.

Your story reminds me of Memphis at certain times every day, as a Fed-X hub.  I see them on FlightAware,

You don't need to tell me about it, I've lived it! Years ago, I was in Memphis on business. They had booked me in to a hotel under the outgoing flight path. Starting before dawn, pairs of 727s flew over under full power every few seconds.
