    Thanks to historical material contributed by Lee Corbin, Kevin Walsh, Ron Plante, Brian Rehwinkel, and hundreds of other aviation history buffs over the past quarter, the "Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields" website's quantity of material has grown to a total of 2,249 airfields, across all 50 states. This includes new additions describing former airfields such as Grand River Airpark MI, Maricopa Airport CA, David's Field MI, Twin City Airport AR, Nottingham Field VA, Steven's Desert Airport CA, Point Spencer AFB AK, Senia Airport IN, North Augusta Airport SC, and updates to many others. If you have applicable material about a former airfield, particularly pictures, please let me know.

    Largest one around here to close was Pratt’s in East Hartford, Rentschler Field. Turned into a football stadium (there went a few buckets of taxpayer money) and retail.

    You have a great website, Paul. Very interesting.

    If you run out of something to do, how about taking over this site which the owner is sadly, not able to update. :)

    Wasn't sure where to put this so here we go. He's my favorite biking vlogger.

    Abandoned airfield in Thailand. Fast forward to 7:30 to see the airplane of which I have no idea what it is but it looks really cool.
