Any AZ guys around might be interested in knowing that Coolindge is going to get hopping here in a few months.

International air is moving from Memorial (the .. almost ... dirt strip south of Stellar) to Coolidge. They just got a contract with the city to manage the airport. They're going build a new hangar (big enough for the 130s and stuff) at the south end of the ramp, put in 24 hour fuel and build a bunch of new hangars (some two story with apartments on top).

Will be interesting to see how it plays out.

Here is a question for you guys who live in AZ - what do you guys know about the castle (and its residents) that is close to Scottsdale? I think it is in Black Canyon.

As an AZ native, I'll take a stab.......Are you referring to:

Castle Hot Springs? The old resort northwest of Lake Pleasant that burned down a number of years ago and was rebuilt? It was a haven for stars to go hang out at.

Or are you referring to the Shangri-La resort on 7th Street north of Carefree Highway? That's the nude resort that's been there for years.

On a separate note, I don't know what the heck T&G is going to do with their C-130s at Memorial, the darn things are grounded as is (the A-models at least) so I don't know how hopping Coolige will be, at least not since the USAF stopped operating T-37s out of there in 1991.

Chandler-Memorial is a cool airport to see, lots of older vintage aircraft there, like a Howard 500 that I'd love to have.

Trivia: What was the airfield codename for Coolige that the USAF used for it's T-37 operations?

Nope this is actually a private residence - I am quite sure it is in Black Canyon.

Could be the one where the explosives were taken away by the Sheriff's Office a few years back.

I have not heard that story - the reason I ask is because a guy who is playing polo at our club owns it. I just wondered what is was like - it does have dungeons!!!

The castle at I-17 and Deer Valley Road?






(It's one of the Castle Botique "adult" stores).

NO - this one old guy lives in a castle just north of PHX. From pictures it looked pretty big - I just wondered if you guys knew anything about it.

Calm down, Iain ... just teasing you.

I don't know anything about it, nor have I ever heard anything about. But I've only been here two years.
