This is a really cool site for Pacific abandoned airfields. Flying long haul it always blows my mind how many little rock’s are out there on the big water.

2017 was a great year for the "Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields" website. Thanks to historical material contributed by Lee Corbin, Kevin Walsh, Ron Plante, Brian Rehwinkel, and hundreds of other aviation history buffs, entries for an additional 117 airfields have been added to the website in the past year. This brings the site's coverage to a total of 2,280 airfields, across all 50 states. It includes new additions describing former airfields such as Tucson Airpark AZ, Yates Airport TX, Westwood Airport (1st location) CA, Holly Airport MI, Robbinsdale Airport MN, Northern Pump Airfield IL, Maveal Airport MI, Genesee Field NY, Hughesville Airport P, Applegarth Airfield NJ, and updates to many others. If you have applicable material about a former airfield, particularly pictures, please let me know.

And I truly appreciate financial donations, without which the site could not continue.

The "Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields" website is celebrating its 20th Anniversary! Driven by my interest to document our nation's disappearing aviation infrastructure, I put it on the web back in 1999. It's hard to believe now, but that was only 8 years after the world's first website, and only one year after the creation of Google.

The website has gone through incredible changes & growth: adding the domain name Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields, changing web hosting providers, but most of all adding an amazing amount of content documenting an ever-growing set of airfields, 90% of which has been sent in by readers. Some of these dedicated band of fellow aviation historians have been sending me material for literally 20 years. That has resulted in the website now covering a total of 2,346 airfields, across all 50 states. Many readers have told me that by seeing how many airfields we've lost, it motivates them to support the airfields we still have. That is the website's most important role.

So thanks to everyone who has supported the website over the past 20 years!
