LETTER TO THE EDITOR
I really enjoyed the article about Van Sant Airport (Fields of Dreams: Saved but not immune from the times). I flew there in my Cessna 170B back in the early ’70s. At that time, the Smella family ran the operation. I got my first taste of soaring there and got my glider rating in two days. It was a very nostalgic place and so glad it escaped extinction. Thanks for the nice article.
