Latest comments on airports in the United States

Traveling due West I ran head on it to worsening weather. spun around and tried to get back in the clear but the sky opened up and the worst rain I've ever encountered began to fall. Flash flood stuff. immediately headed toward the closest airport (Three Forks). Landed with plenty of thunder and lightening. Moral of the story. You can watch the weather very closely (I DID) and still get bushwhacked! Thank you Garmin!

Great airport / FBO. A bit spendy but hey, worth it.

Camping OK on lawn in front of fbo-also showers in the back of fbo

Anonymous flyer on Priebe Airport view thread
 

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.

Feel welcome to stop by to visit Tony and Danny. You will be greeted with a "hello glad to see ya" attitude. They are both A&P mechanics in case you need help with repairs. They are making improvements to the 5200' grass strip. They are always happy to great new visitors and are always glad to see old and new friends. They usually have a cook out every 3rd Saturday of the month and, all are welcome. Chip in by bringing your favorite dish or just show up to chat with fellow pilots while enjoying a pot luck dinner. You want find a more friendly place.
