Naval Outlying Landing Field 15305

Naval Outlying Landing Field 15305


Ellendale, Tennessee (TN), US
This former military airfield was one of several satellite airfields which were constructed during WW2 for the use of NAS Memphis (5 miles northwest), which was one of the busiest Navy training fields during the war.

Many of Memphis' satellite airfields were built in the same "wagon wheel" airfield configuration.

Jack Estes reported in 2005, “The narrow 'structure' is actually a pilots shed for a local radio-control airplane club.

If you look carefully in the center of the runways, you can see two smaller paved runways that the models fly off of.
