You're welcome If I was painting the plane again, I would choose brighter colours.

Default 08ME Lingbergh field, ME17 Roxbury, 50PA Pegasus

At Lindbergh Field they have very nice annual breakfast. I missed it but there was a Sunoco gas station couple yards away with good Food Mart.








Pegasus airpark was deserted. I deviated to there because of weather. They have very tall trees on both ends of runway. Don't come fast.

Default NJ25 Peaslees, 90ME Zinck, 3B5 Twitchell and 8ME4 Crow Island

Last month I added several more grass/turf/non paved airfields to my collection


NJ25 Peaslees airstrip. Write up here.






There was a Piper Cubs gathering in Rumford, ME at Zinck private airfield. I was invited. Does my RV look like a Piper Cub? Write up to follow...






Twitchell airport 3B5 has three runways. Asphalt, grass and water. Guess from which one a gaggle of Cubs took off?







Crow Island 8ME4 is a private airfield. There was a CIA fly in. Grass smooth as a pool table. Nice place to swim nearby.






This one is an undisclosed location I didn't land there.

Default 9VG Campbell Field

Somebody gave me food stamps long time ago and I didn't use them. Heard there is a fly in soup kitchen and I went on Sunday to cash the stamps. The soup stand was closed












The field is rough and soft it's definitely not Salmon Farm. Graded 3.

Talking Towered grass KHFD Hartford CT

I got a lot of grass here for my herbarium. A pound in each wheel pant. Hartford-Brainard has a parallel turf runway. Thanks Andy for great idea!

Default Bayport 23N and Kroelinger 29N

Bayport Aerodrome 23N seats under Class Charlie airspace. Very nice little airport with well maintained runway they actually have two runways. One is usually closed but you can taxi on it. My DAR hangar is on the south east side. I didn't see him since June 2011. Now he is building a Breezy.










Kroelinger 29N is located in Southern New Jersey. It has very smooth grass strip but nobody is on the field on a perfect August evening.






There is another public use grass field just east of Kroelinger it's called Bucks. The name is absolutely correct the deer own it. I did several passes and bucks couldn't even thought of leaving the runway. I buzzed several feet over them trying to scare. They moved a bit but still remained on the runway.

Default Closing Grass Season 2013

50 new non paved runways were added to my collection in 2013 which brings total of 68 different grass/gravel/other-then-hard surface strips.

Some of them were restricted and I was invited. Some were not but I was politely asked why I am here. Once I was demanded to leave because nobody received my messages and knowing a key person didn't help.

Great lessons learned and wonderful experience added to my flying experience bag. Below are some views I am sure you visited some of them.
