New Garden Flying Field as shown on 1969 Sectional Chart

A view of the local area in the beginning of the New Garden Flying Field
as shown on the February 1969 issue of the Washington Sectional Chart.
New Garden had only 2800 feet of Turf. It has not yet been accurately
surveyed to show the proper field elevation of 435 feet, not 445 feet.
You will note that the PA Route 1 by-pass just to our north only runs
from the east end of Kennett Square to the Rt 41 Exit. New Garden had
10 or more based aircraft in 1967 and had the official openning celebration
in June of 1968. The runway was paved in 1970 for a length of 3400 feet.
The runway was extended 295 feet to the east in 1988 for a total 3700 feet.

Other still surviving airports have changed. The West Chester Airport
now renamed The Brandywine Airport had only 2600 feet of Turf.

Lost airports include, first to go Oxford Airport, Oxford PA
lost due to PennDOT's new at the time regulation that prohibited
the transfer of Airport operating licenses without relicensing
the airport to the new 1984 Criteria.
Next to go was the Bridgeport Airport in Bridgeport NJ.
Lost to developemental pressures that were derailled due to discovery
of contamination from crop dusting operations causing superfund designation
which has prevented any use or reuse of the property.
Shannon Airport in Downingtown PA was lost due to family turmoil.
The Cecil County in Elkton MD was lost to developemental pressure
and now is a Gore Products site.
The New London Airport New London PA was lost due to to loss of the son
