Nice photo! Sadly, Hadley Airport is long-gone.
Hadley Airport was on a section of land on what now borders on South Plainfield, Piscataway, & Middlesex , NJ...and now is a site of a large shopping center & industrial park, near the intersection of Stelton Road south of Rt 287..... also served the Army camp at Camp Kilmer
Brings back memories....
That's where I learned to fly...A few years after the land vehicles left, although there were a few bi-planes still around.
Long strip was cinders...shorter strip just mowed grass. Was a nice place...good people - good instructions...good background led to flying this
Merry Christmas, and a healthy New Year to all..
Hi Dave, I never flew an airliner, but did get a commercial single and multi-engine land ratings. I did love to fly, and have a couple of close friends who are airline pilots. My favorite airplane memory is landing my Comanche at Alton Bay, NH. Alton Bay is the only FAA-approved ice runway in the USA. Braking action zero.
Dave, I wound up with 8000+ hours of military flying. My last was the KC-135. Haven't flown much since I retired from the USAF in 72 with 20 years ...Yes, I'm old!
I stored my 23 all those years and restored it in about 69. I'm the second owner.
