“History & mystery combined.”
On the following pages, you will find information on vanished or abandoned airfields & their unusual histories.
As a pilot, a particular interest of mine has always been the abandoned airfields that dot the landscape of much of this country.
Both for their potential safety value to a pilot in an emergency,
and also for their sometimes fascinating history, this particular topic has always held my curiosity.
When I'm a passenger on commercial flights,
I've always found myself looking out the window, constantly looking for airfields below.
When I fly as a pilot myself, I've always tried to land at as many airports as possible,
to learn a little about each one.
