at Priebe Airport,
Priebe was where I remember flying out of as a kid in the 1980's and early 1990's. Sometime around 2010 the airport was sold to the county sanitation and the landfill is very nearby. However, you can still see remnants of the runway (cut in half with a road dissecting it and in very poor shape) as well as the aircraft tiedowns just west of the former runway. The old prop shop (which operated as an event space prior to being sold) has been torn down, but the hangar that Jim Priebe built in the late 1980's is still in use by the landfill for storing equipment.
