Not Functional

The aiport is no longer functional. It's been converted to a flea market and landing there would be virtually impossible.

Nice place to go

I am here for a few days to finish up my private certificate. Will probably consider coming back to get commercial and IFR.

Gyrofield, you say?

Per this exceptional decade-long blog featuring WW2 Japanese installations (the link for this particular location is here https://airport1111.blog.ss-blog.jp/matsunami-airstrip but is in Japanese), this was the staging area for the use of Kayaba Ka-1 (reverse-engineered Kellett KD-1) observation autogyros which were used here primarily for submarine spotting.

Per Wikipedia

TXL saw its last flight on 8 November 2020 after all traffic had been transferred gradually to the new Berlin Brandenburg Airport until this date. It has been legally decommissioned as an airfield after a mandatory transitional period on 4 May 2021. All government flights were also relocated to the new airport with the exception of helicopter operations which will stay at a separate area on the northern side of Tegel Airport until 2029.

Needs TLC

The terminal building really needs some cleaning and TLC. Runway is in good shape.

Can you imagine an airport here?

Per http://www.aerofiles.com/airports-CA.html, "[approx: 37-43-22N, 119-38-09W] (19??-19??) 1927 = W of Yosemite Village; "approximately 1300' square grass field, very dangerous." 1928 = (L) (Standard Oil ad, WnFly 1/28). 19?? = (R) Closed to flying activity." The listed coordinates place this at El Capitan Meadow! This does not appear to be listed on Freeman's Abandoned Airports site.

Nice place to stop for lunch

Nice airport. Even though it's a bit out of town, it's a quick taxi ride into town.

Fiedl 'ident' in CSV file uses old ICAO (HSSS)

I am reporting that the CSV dump of the airport DB for the 'ident' field still uses the old ICAO, HSSS, instead of the new one, HSSK.

(Probably 'keyword' needs changing too)

My understanding is that the 'ident' field is about ICAO code, from the Data dictionary page (https://ourairports.com/help/data-dictionary.html):

"The text identifier used in the OurAirports URL. This will be the ICAO code if available. Otherwise, it will be a local airport code (if no conflict), or if nothing else is available, an internally-generated code starting with the ISO2 country code, followed by a dash and a four-digit number."

This was previously a duplicate heading for Mestia Airport -- it's been repurposed for a heliport near Tbilisi.

home of the RAF Lightning's of no 5,no 11 and the Lightning

RAF Binbrook as an airfield is in a sorry state.runways and taxyways gone and the site is a haulage yard. Lightning F6 XR724 is looking sad and unloved despite flying home to Binbrook in 1992 after Warton finished using it as a chase aircraft for radar tests. it was hoped it would remain flying on the airshow circuit if the C.A.A. would allow. which they didn't. after runways and taxyways were ripped up and disputes with the new land owners, XR724 sits stranded,needing massive amounts of engineering,time and love to see it hopefully join Bruntingthorpe's 2 fast taxying Lightnings.

Site of Arizona Flying Circus Fly-in

Not quite the same location as the old dedicated airfield to the west, but in a way this resort continues to have aviation facilities in the 21st century. Pretty neat.

What a fun approach! Met family there and when the attendant saw kids come into the airport, he gave them all rubber band balsa gliders.
