Drag Strips

  • Milton Speedway, 1981-84
In looking for airport Identifier 1B7 (Milton drag strip assigned by BTV), I realized that was the old drag strip my flight instructor and I used (1981 - early 1984) for short take-offs and landings. It has a 50-foot classic dead elm tree at the east end of the strip. It was not an official air strip. We used it for years and it was an excellent practice area for this type of flying. I thought you might find this interesting. I could use it or fly off it now.
