Airport ID Help Please

Thu Feb 21, 2002 11:12 am

Ok, this is like the most generic small airport I've ever seen and the quality of the pic is pretty bad, but I was hoping someone could help identify this airport. It was taken on initial descent from EWR-MDW, so I'd guess this is somewhere in Indiana. If someone could help, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Do you know if the pic was taken in the morning or the afternoon? Also, summer, winter, etc.

I took the pic from the right side (facing north) of the plane. I'd say it was about 5 miles north of our flight path. It was about 1 hour 35 mins out of EWR. We had just started descent into MDW. Thanks.

Interestingly, the pic used at the airport info page http://www.airnav.com/airport/KPPO is identical to the one you took. This airport also has its own website:
