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

Thanks to material submitted by readers, the historical content on Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields has continued to expand: In the past 3 months, a total of 35 additional airfields have been added to the website, bringing the site's total of airfields covered to 1,996, across all 50 states. Many of the existing writeups have been updated with new material, with a total of over 30,723 airfield pictures now on the site.

So if you haven't visited Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields in a while, come back & see how much interesting aviation historical material has been added to the site.

Thanks!

The historical content on Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields continues to grow.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.
