That would be FRA - either around 30 minutes by public transport, or just about the same time by car (and now you're free to guess why I wouldn't even take a car if I had one...  Wink ... completely unnecessary in Frankfurt - thank goodness for that!!!).

If you ever fly into FRA (especially when it's dark), you'll see a tower north of town that has several rows of magenta lights at the top... you can see it just behind/to the right of the winglet in this picture - I live just a bit east of that tower...

In Canada, I live just under 1 mile from the threshold of YVK. The closest airport with airline service is YLW and is about a 30min drive. The closest "big" airport is YVR and is about a 4 - 4.5h drive away.

When in Germany, DUS is the closest and is just a 10 min drive away.

I wasn't aware there was an airport near Snellville. Any idea how long has it been there? I'm guessing some of the a/c based there used to operate out of Stone Mountain Britt Memorial Airport (00A) back before it closed in the Mid-1990s, not too long after I moved from the area.

Is my closest. I can see the runway from my apartment complex, so it's only about a mile away. It's got a beautiful 10,000ft runway, the Indiana Air National Guard and a FAA flight service station, but hasn't had commercial service in about 15 years.

Indianpolis International Airport IND
Is the closes with scheduled service and is about 65 miles away.

Closest airport is Elvington, but it's not a proper airport. Sherburn-in-Elmet is relatively close by; we flew out of there a couple of times in a Piper with a friend.

Closest commercial airport is Leeds-Bradford.
