    Great work! This post was forwarded, saying that it was at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, New York. This airport is no longer active. I believe this is Floyd Bennett Airport in Warren County.

      There is still one active runway at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, it is a emergency runway for JFK but also used by the Aviation museum at Floyd Bennett called HARP “Historical Aviation Restoration Project” They fly planes in and out of there a few times a year as well as a fly in event on occasion, last one was about 3 years ago. I can say the Tower in the photo is not from the Brooklyn Feild so it might be the NJ location.

        Hi Jay,
        I wasn’t aware that one of the runways was still considered active, even though both are commonly driven on. Good to know. You may be interested to know that HARP was severely damaged during Sandy and won’t be open until extensive repair to the building. Here’s hoping!!

    Well done Jay!

    Great to see another Millard as an active Auxiliarist . Keep up the good work.
