Abandoned and little known airfields

3

Paul Freeman, a pilot, created this website.

So far, he's compiled descriptions and images of 2,280 airfields in all 50 states.

You can spend endless amounts of time here, looking at the past and watching how it disappears: palimpsests in the making.

From the site:

On the following pages, you will find information on vanished or abandoned airfields and little-known airfields with unusual histories.

As a pilot, a particular interest of mine has always been the abandoned airfields that dot the landscape of part of this country, as well as other unusual & little-known airfields.

Both for their potential safety value to a pilot in an emergency, and also for their sometimes fascinating history, this particular topic has always held my curiosity.

When I'm a passenger on commercial flights, I've always found myself looking out the window, constantly looking for airfields below.

When I fly as a pilot myself, I've always tried to land at as many airports as possible, to learn a little about each one.

I find a good Hacker News comment string to be both entertaining and informative: it doesn't get any better than that.

And it keeps on giving: constant updating means there's always something fresh.
