Here's another one for you.
Almost looks like one of the mysterious Mars photos we see now and then.
I think this one started out to be a community catering to pilots and airplane owners and appears to be abandoned.
Whether it is or not, hard to say.
The "hangars" are separated by quite a bit which is what leads me to believe it is/was a private airport/community.
A little closer look.
It does look like it's paved, the runway and taxi strip have a differing color than does the surrounding desert.
Fewer plants growing in the paved area as well.
The asphalt at desert and other airports lose their dark black shade pretty fast and sometimes they can be hard to see from the air.
Location is just off Goff Rd. a half mile or so.
Goff Rd. parallels the main railroad tracks which run between Barstow and San Bernardino, California.
Airport is about 2-3 miles S/E of the Hwy 40 overpass which goes over the RR tracks and is about 3-4 miles S/E of Fenner which appears to be a very
small community serving the motoring public.
I stumbled onto it by accident and the symmetrical layout struck me as a little different from most airports I've seen.
