Landing to the North at DFW

Tue May 08, 2018 7:16 am

I have noticed when landing to the North at DFW on the East side of the field a few miles out on final there are several airfields and closed off airfields that appear to house thousands of parked or stored vehicles on runways and or taxiways. Can anyone elaborate on what is going on and why?

There is the former NAS Dallas which must be one of the closed airfields you are seeing.

The cars are all retired Dallas police cars. https://www.dallasnews.com/opinion/comm ... sley-field

An old thread about the same thing:

Which should give some answer to the vehicles being stored there.

Interesting story that Dallas News link is...I hope somehow the land gets cleaned up and re-used somehow.
