History on page 58:
In the early forties a group of men decided that they needed
to learn to fly. Taking the city road grader to a pasture south
of Town they cut runways, added an adobe surface and gradually built hangars. The postmaster arranged to pick up airmail each day until the Postal Service made other arrangements. Four different flying clubs used this airport. In 2006, the Air Force made arrangements for basic training pilots to use it to practice touchdown landings. New blacktop was applied and painted by the government.
The airport has cross runways and is located about 25 miles from Pueblo Airport. It is used by Doss Aviation headquartered in Pueblo as an auxiliary airport used to train Air Force student pilots in light aircraft.
Imagine my surprise to actually see an airplane here. You can watch a video here.
The only sign is on the mailbox. You can see the location and an overhead views on google maps here:
There is a sign that says "Beware of Dog." Believe it. The dog came all the way from the other side of the runway to watch me. I had to move a bit and keep the motor running on my scooter in case I needed a quick departure.
