Cape Newenham LRRS Airport Wikipedia
Cape Newenham Airport is a United States Air Force military airstrip. Its mission is to provide access to the Cape Newenham Long Range Radar Station for servicing and other requirements.
The airstrip was constructed in 1951 during the construction of the Cape Newenham Air Force Station. During the station's operational use as a manned radar station, it provided transportation for station personnel and for supplies and equipment to be airlifted to the station. With the manned radar station's closure in 1983, the airstrip now provides access to the unattended site for maintenance personnel and other requirements.
It is not staffed by any support personnel, and is not open to the public. During the winter months, it may be inaccessible due to the extreme weather conditions at the location.
Cape Newenham LRRS Airport has one runway designated 14/32 with a gravel surface measuring 3,950 by 150 feet (1,204 x 46 m). For the 12-month period ending August 2, 1978, the airport had 1,024 aircraft operations, an average of 85 per month: 98% air taxi and 2% military.
