Default Airport history

Entries for an additional 49 airfields have been added to the "Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields" website in the past year. This brings the site's coverage to a total of 2,362 airfields, across all 50 states. It includes new additions describing former airfields such as Oberlin Airport OH, Horn Point Aerodrome MD, Bland's Wharf Intermediate Field VA, Milford Intermediate Field VA, Erie Aerodrome MI, Pottawatomie Airport KS, De Witt Airport IA, Grumman Calverton Airfield NY, and updates to many others.
If you have applicable material about a former airfield, particularly pictures, please let me know.

This is an amazing site full of interesting airport facts and history. Thank you Paul for your efforts to preserve this fading aviation history.

ps -- My airport roaming days began the early 1960s in northern NJ and the northeast US. Paul's site recalls many pleasant memories of airports long gone.
