|In the extreme eastern end of the city is the airport. Just beyond the airport is a desolate dirt road named "Creamery Road", after the dairy which used to stand at the corner. Follow the road over the railroad tracks, past the massive radar dome, past the farm, to the end. Park your car and walk north along the airport fence, go underneath the fence at the brook and cross the brook. Follow the fence until it turns eastward, and continue to go north. This is the end of the rarely used secondary runway. |
If you came here at the right time of day (that is, night time), there should be a beautiful sea of lights stretching outwards towards the terminal off in the distance. If you're lucky, you can watch an airliner take off, and feel the roar as it turns its engines to full power.
