That web site made me sad, as I have been into a number of them. Ma and Pa aviation is almost gone.

Many of the existing writeups have been updated with new material, with a total of over 30,723 airfield pictures now on the site.

The historical content on Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields continues to grow. with two recent sources of a significant amount of historical pictures & information. In addition to other readers' contributions of material, two readers of the site, Kevin Walsh & David Stevenson, have recently contributed a treasure trove of material which has started to appear on the site & will continue to be added to the site over the coming month. I appreciate the flow of pictures & material from everyone else, as Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields is truly a collaborative project. The site's total of airfields covered now includes 2,068 airfields, across all 50 states.

If you haven't visited Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields in a while, take a look to see what's been added.
