Mc Kenzie Bridge Airport (00S)
 
Anyone ever landed an RV here? Is the runway smooth enough?

Thanks!! 🙏

You might be able to land there in an RV; although it will go out on a truck. Unless the surface has been greatly improved.

I fly into 00S pretty regularly. Usually in the Bearhawk, but have had the RV4 in there a few times.

Two folks in a C172 crashed, burned and passes in the last few days there. Do not know the details.

If Vlad chickened out. Save yourself and avoid it!!

Thanks to everyone who responded. I opted out of landing there and ended up landing in Eugene. We walked the airstrip while we were there and it did not seem suitable for an RV.

This here is very useful info that should be preserved. RV pilots walked the strip and recommend it is not suitable.

Fatal Accident @ McKenzie Bridge Airport
 
I just learned there was a fatal accident last Friday/Saturday at McKenzie Bridge. As I'm told, a newly minted PPL took a friend in a 172 to McKenzie at around 19:30 or so and augured it in trying to depart.

Most familiar with that airport think its okay for tail-draggers with sufficient wingspan / power to get off the ground quickly. Also, take-offs to the east are NOT recommended due to trees and hills.

Looks like that is what he may have done:
