I have recently found out that there use to be a airport in my hometown of Sacramento. The area that i live in called Natomas, use to have an airport down the street that was called Natomas Feild. The down of Natomas was in the northwest area of Sacramento. The part of Sacramento was all field, it was mostly farmers. The Airport lasted from 1945 - 1995 The airport was remove when there was a sudden boom in the Sacramento area with housing. When the production of houses started, the airport was removed because of the neighborhood that was going to take it’s place. But to this day there is still no houses that took it’s place. The airport was left to decay by mother nature. There is nothing left of the airport but the hangar that there was.
Article from the GA News: End is near for Sacramento’s Natomas Field
ACRAMENTO, California — Concerns over liability are threatening a small
Airport near Sacramento. Natomas Field, a 26-acre, privately owned facility,
as been in operation since 1946, but according to one of its owners, it has
utlived its usefulness.
Natomas Field used to be surrounded by agriculture. Now it is surrounded by
homes and business parks. More homes and businesses are springing up, and
that makes airport property owner Jim Gately nervous.
This is all that’s left of the airport today:
I wish this airport was still around today,
