The old airport is no more active. The old runway is crossed by a new road. Some company is going to build a huge hotel and golf course.

What memories! Liddetta Airfield was the original home of Ethiopian Air Lines (EAL) before it was renamed Ethiopian Airlines (EA) and moved to Bole in 1963, and was also the airfield used by National Airline Training Project (NATP) Regional Insect Control Program (RICP), Ethiopia-United States Mapping Mission, USAID, and the Ethiopian Army--among others. This is a very nice photograph Herr Stehmann, Vielen dank. I can see my old house, the old American Community School (now the International Community School), the old Imperial Golf Course, and the temporary homes of many of my dear old friends. The boulevard crossing the east end of the runway marks the progress of time, a sad note to the memory of one who knew the airport in better times. Thank you for this photo.
