Last Week's Flights Were the Last
The three turf runways, 1675-foot 17-35; 2040-foot 5-23; and
9-27 (2468 feet), are closed; and another of our country's old

Neighboring Barnstable (MA) Town Manager John Klimm told
reporter Emily Dooley of the Cape Cod Times that his people
appreciated the airport. "We've said to the owners that we very
much would like to keep the airport open, but we can't force them
to do it."

airport. The businesses on the field, including gliding, skydiving,
primary training, and the Cape Cod Flying Service, all have to
vacate by the end of the month, if negotiations fail.

silent, with only birds doing all the flying.
