Photo added[edit]

This page was marked as as requesting a photo. I added an aerial photo of South County Airport which I snapped while on approach to Reid-Hillview Airport yesterday. Ikluft (talk) 05:37, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Airport code history[edit]

According to http://members.tripod.com/airfields_freeman/CA/Airfields_CA_Monterey.html, the old Morgan Hill Airport37°09′05″N 121°39′11″W / 37.151355°N 121.65318°W / 37.151355; -121.65318 a few miles to the northwest — or Morgan Hill Airmen field as it was locally known — used the FAA designator "Q99", the same as South County Airport, which was built later and replaced the former when it was abandoned and the land sold to developers. I don't know if it is true, and I don't have access to any old airport guides or sectional charts from the pre-1970 era when the airport still existed. The Q99 code was used for South County at least through the 1980s, as far as I know. Also, FAA archives might elucidate when South County switched from Q99 to E16. — QuicksilverT @ 22:37, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
