Abandoned Bellevue Airport

Bellevue Airfield was a fully functional airport in Bellevue WA, operating from 1948 to 1983. It had a single runway (2/20), and was less prone to fog than the neighboring Renton and Boeing Fields.

Suburban encroachment led to it being overrun by office parks. This is a picture of what was the heliport, 71WA. It's now a basketball court, though the Google view hasn't yet caught up with the development.
