Can anyone identify this airport? I made this photo en route from Pittsburgh (PIT) to Cincinnati (CVG).

Help is appreciated!

That was quick. Wish it was a clearer shot.

That is Rickenbacker Int'l (KLCK) outside of Columbus, Ohio. An ex-Air Force Base, it is now heavily used by freight companies.

One thing you'll notice is a tiny third runway at the top of the picture - old 6/24. I believe they closed this one when the second long runway opened up.

First thing I noticed was the lack of a parking lot which meant it had to be a military base [at some point]  Smile

Skybus will operate out of CMH, the Columbus Regional Airport Authority and Skybus felt it'd be better cause of the facilities there already.

There are still a number of KC-135s down there....


This airport is used mostly for Cargo, I think they get in some 747Fs from the Far East. It is also the hug for AirNet.

The Airport is always fun to fly into in a C172  Smile (do multiple touch and goes in a single pass with a 12,500 ft Runway)
