Photo Safari #85 - Airports

Blog Blog

Thursday, Jan 24 2013 by

It has been many years since the mass airport flood by cmike77. That guy could find airports! Since then we have a lot more updated imagery. Lets get the rest of the airports documented. Both active and former runways.

Please post your airports in the format “Name (Code)”. For example “Glacier Park Int’l Airport (FCA)” as often as possible. And provide a link to the airport site or database entry at World Airport Codes. These are not required but it sure helps.

Any maping service is valid. Post your finds to Safari Submissions and Buildings – Air Ports. The safari will end at 0700 UTC on Wednesday January 30. Extra Karma for military bases and former abandoned WWII runways.

Good luck and happy hunting!

Here are a few examples:
