Gilfillan Airport

I was looking at a map yesterday afternoon with one of those dinky little desert airstrips marked on it… alas, it appears Gilfillan Airport is no more. It’s worth browsing Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields for a few that haven’t been paperd over with awful houses, though I’ve no idea what to do with an old airstrip once I’ve found one.

I’m sure some of you can tell me.

    If paved: mini car racing! Roller derby! Model airplanes!

    Take 1 abandoned air strip, 1 swimming pool (drained), mix in giant blow-up photos of Elizabeth Taylor (to taste) and bake in an overheated imagination for a couple of days, and you have a perfect J G Ballard short story.
