Things to be verified[edit]

There is an opinion that this airport serves as a junk yard for airliners. E.g. http://www.airliners.net/search/linkhere.php?id=0427307 Solarapex 02:04, 24 August 2006 (UTC)

Use as urban combat training facility[edit]

I think some more could be written about the extensive use of the abandoned base housing areas for urban warfare training by the United States Marine Corps and Army. Prior to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, several front-line Marine Corps units trained at SCLA in a final "dress rehearsal" for the upcoming "battle of Baghdad" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.237.88.252 (talk) 01:00, 15 October 2008 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

Jcwarrior21 inserted phone numbers to people who appear to be involved in a redevelopment project. I have removed them, and these appear to be the only things he has done on wikipedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stargate70 (talkcontribs) 04:04, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Huh?[edit]

Two places in the article say the main runway length is 15,050 feet / 4,587 meters. A third spot in the Airport overview gets specific: "15,059 ft (4,590 m), SCLA's runway 17/35 is the second longest public-use runway in the United States, surpassed only by that of the Denver International Airport 16,000 ft (4,900 m) runway 16R/34L." Yet earlier in the same paragraph says "the Department of Transportation approved a $4.9 million grant for the SCLA to extend its main runway from 10,050 ft (3,060 m) to 13,050 ft (3,980 m) to accommodate international jet transports." So which is it? Is it a typo in some form? Where did the additional 2,000 (or more) feet come from. Trackinfo (talk) 21:35, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
