17 August 2012 Felts Field

Felts Field opened in 1913 and was Spokane's airport for a number of years before giving way to the much larger Geiger Field for passenger traffic. It still logs about 1,000 flights each week and has a very unique water runway on the Spokane River. I was making my way to the other airport for a red eye back to Cleveland and stopping for a few caches along the way. The neon sign must look great in the evenings. The art deco clock tower points to an era long gone. These runways must have seen a lot of Ford Trimotors, DC-2's and DC-3's over the years.
