Doob, the character driving, is headed to Moses Lake. Me, I turned south at Ellensberg heading for Yakima. Doob is headed to Moses Lake because there is an enormous airport there, a relic left over from the cold war.
|Big Hangar at Grant County International Airport|
That gray strip cutting across the upper part of the picture is the runway
The runway is more than two miles long, and according to Wikipedia, it has one gigantic hangar that the Strategic Air Command used to house eight B-52's. The hangar has been taken over by a company that manufactures high lift work platforms. This is only decent photo I could find of the place.
The airport is being used mostly for testing now, but occasionally it comes in handy for moving things.
