Abandoned & Little-Known Airfields is an online database detailing information and first hand memories about airports in the United States which are no longer in operation, or are rarely used. The website was started by Paul Freeman in 1999 as he had developed an interest on the subject. As of 2015, there are over 2,000 airports chronicled on the site and it has been viewed over 1.7 million times.[2] Freeman continues to edit the site along with a small team of "airfield archeologists" who do primary source research using period aeronautical charts, directories, and related publications. Authors on the site include [2] Chris Kennedy, Ron Plante, Brian Rehwinkel, Jonathan Westerling, John Voss and the late David Brooks.[3] In the US, airports close at about a rate of one per week.[4][5]
