Abandoned Airports

Thu Apr 27, 2006 3:57 am

Yesterday there was a topic of "Abandoned Terminals", which was great and very interesting looking at the pics.

Does anyone have any pics of completely dereclict / abandoned airports of 30+ years but still standing today??

Cheers!

There are quite a few abandoned airports in the pacific area.
For example PLPA(Palmyra), JON(Johnston atoll), Kure atoll, CIS(Canton island) and the list goes on.
Exceptions confirm the rule.

I saw Bettis Field (former Pittsburgh-McKeesport Airport) in I think West Mifflin or in Whitaker. Charles Lindbergh flew there in 1927. The place was unused after about 1960 after the facility was sold to Westinghouse. The over all airfield has changed, but a few hangars remain intact... I think in a recent areal photo you can still make out where the runways used to be...

Can anyone still see the runways at Bettis Field (Pittsburgh McKeesport)?

Greater Southwest (GSW) in Fort Worth is just south of D/FW Airport. They turned the runway into Amon Carter Blvd, where AA is now headquartered, and the airport is no longer there.

Flushing Airport, I believe it was abandoned in the late 70's or early 80's. It was about a mile away from LGA, however it was only used for General Aviation. It still remains, however the hangars are collapsed and the runway is flooded.

The old Waterford/New London Airport was closed in the late 1970s or early 1980s and replaced by the Groton/New London Airport. The field has been vacant for the last 25 or so years and there have been plans to develop it into either an industrial park or for houses but nothing has come of this.

Even though the old PIT terminal has long since been torn down (well, as of 2000) you can still make out where the building used to stand. I took off right over it flying out of PIT to PHL on WN 1968. There is a newly built cargo distribution facility built in its place, along with the airside business park... I had my digital camera with me, but I was not able to take any pics of it... Sorry Sad

I grew up in Farmington Hills and Novi, never could confirm that an airport was at that location, but I remember the auto repair (at the time) building, always thought it looked like an aircraft hangar, one of life's little mysteries solved.

I'll limit to former commercial airports...

I used to drive by the still-standing Grand Central Air Terminal in Glendale, CA, when I lived near there about 10 years ago. The art-deco terminal/tower is a treat to see! It was the first commercial airline terminal for the LA region. This web site http://www.godickson.com/gca1.htm gives the history and current status. Apparently, existing streets there were once runways, including "Air Way".

Floyd Bennet Field in Brooklyn probably counts, even if it's still used by helicopters and an occasional dirigible. It's part of the Gateway Recreation Area now.

Avon STOLport, between Vail and Beaver Creek, was owned by Rocky Mountain Airways flying their Dash-7s. Land values and jet set skiers what they are, the location is a Walmart now and flying is mostly on jets into Eagle, farther west. Even international ski resorts need a Walmart, I guess.

Not sure but I would guess that they do. I can't think of anything remotely close that they could land their jets on. The race is going on this weekend so I'd say check Flightaware about 30 minutes to 2 hours after the race.

Well, they are only 35nm from BHM, though Talladega's airport is actually a public airfield open all the time. If they need more runway, or cheaper gas, they can go to nearby Anniston

I'm surprised their planes aren't converted to run on good old leaded fuel like the cars.


I forget the name of the old field, perhaps Corry Field IIRC. But down in Pensacola they have converted one of the old fields into the base Exchange and Commissary and other services for the sailors.

From Grenada, WI


This is Pearls Airport, St. Andrew's, Grenada. Used up until Point Salines International airport was opened in 1983.. (hope that date is right)

You dont see much airfield there, but there is the runway there, and is now used for drag racing. (I had the chance to pretend to be an airplane in my car on the runway.. Big grin)

Yes and no. It is built on an old airfield but the runway for the adjacent airport was not part of the old one.

Quoting N1120A (Reply 14):

This weekend it will be one of the busiest airports in the world with the race going on.

Here's a good one: http://bbs.keyhole.com/ubb/download.php?Number=201773

This is a list of abandoned fields in AL. The guy who started this list is trying to do one for each state.

Find Griel AAF and go east to find Tuskegee Army airfield. This is of course the home of the Tuskegee airmen. The current Tuskegee airport and home of the NPS historic site is to the southeast and across I-85.

Incidentally, GKN Westland has a composite plant on the site of Griel AAF these days.

btw, can anybody tell me how to add Tuskegee AAF to the above list? I've banged around with this and just can't figure it out - or need more sleep.

Florida Atlantic is also built on an old Army Airfield. I can remember when my mother was finishing her MA there in the early 70s that you could drive on the runway and they still used some of the old buildings including the tower for office space.

Here's a shot of what's left of the Bellevue, WA Airfield that was closed in 1983. The offices at the bottom of the picture belong to Boeing...my dad works in the building closest to the remains of the runway/taxiway. He has a nice view of them from his office.

Floyd Bennett Field. It's still used by the helicopters of the NYPD Aviation unit, and IINM on rare occasions fixed-wing aircraft use one of the runways.

MUC used to be "Muenchen Riem" until May 17, 1992, at which point MUC moved to its current home in Hallbergmoos, a built-from-scratch facility. They did the cutover from the old airport to the new one in a single night, moving *everything* in that one night. I flew out of the new airport on its first day in operation.

I expected complete chaos, but it was actually pretty well organized. In fact, looking back, it feels like it was more organized on that first day of operation than, say, MIA is on a typical day today, at least in my recent experience.

Riem has been converted into a convention center, condos, etc.

You are so right. I have spent a great deal of time at the AA headquarters; and never get tired of driving down that dead-flat road as fast as I can, remembering it's past glories as Greater Southwest's principal runway.

You can still see the northern end of the runway on DFW property, when arriving or departing DFW. (See photo below.)

The photo is found at:
http://www.airfields-reeman.com/TX/A...fields_TX_FtWorth_NE.htm#greaterSW

It's a website I just discovered, which tells the stories of old, closed American airports. I strongly recommend you read the lengthy piece on GSW, especially if you're a partisan in the DFW vs. Love Field debate. After reading the article, you'll have a better understanding of the reasons for plowing Fort Worth's airport under, and allowing the Dallas field to remain.

And you'll understand why Bob Crandall and Amon Carter's old friends at American decided on this particular site for their headquarters campus.

The two pinwheel-shaped buildings house the AA headquarters.

If you look closely, you can see faint remnants of other elements of the airfield. The oval of trees west of AA survive from a time when the old terminal's parking lot used to be there.

Here are some in Dallas:

White Rock Airport - Located SE of Ferguson, E of Highland, S of John West, and W of Buckner.

Dallas/Garland Airport - Located on Northwest Highway, E of Jupiter. Samuel Garland Park, Sam's Club, and Fry's Electronics sit where the airport used to. Closed in the late 1970s after 635 cut off 1,000 feet of the main runway.

US 77 Airport - South side of Danieldale Road at I-35. Parts of the airport can still be seen if you look closely.

Mustang Airport - Northwest Highway between Abrams and Greenville. Currently occupied by Medallion Center and The Village Apartments.

Temsco Airport - Just off Jupiter Road, north of Miller. Currently occupied by a Raytheon plant, I think. Parts of three runways are still visible.

Park Cities Airport - I think this one was located S of Forest, E of Denton Dr, N of Northaven. Could be a different name, but there was an airport there at one point.

Hope that helps

If you do a Google Earth search on Liverpool Airport the old airfield and terminal can clearly be seen on the left, with the new airfield on the right. For some years aircraft would taxi from the old terminal out to the new runway sometimes resulting in very long taxi times.

The old terminal and one of the hangars are both listed buildings; the terminal has been sympathetically converted into a Marriott Hotel whilst the hangar is a health club.









Link shows some classic shots of the old terminal in later years.

There's an old Airforce Base north of Glasgow, Montana that, IIRC, Boeing now uses as a test base. One of my GQ pilots was telling me that the runway is something like 10,000 feet long, and that the strip (along wiht all the support buildings and housing and whatnot) is just way out in the middle of nowhere....

I'm sure a read somewhere that it still exists and the old buildings are left just as they were when the place was abandoned on the day of the Turkish invasion in 1974.
