Description

Ingalls Field is a small Virginia airport perched atop the Warm Springs Mountain ridgeline at near 4000ft (1219m) amsl. It is the highest public use airport east of the Mississippi with a single 5600ft (1707m) runway. As one local news reporter covering the airport summarily described, "...it's so inconspicuously located truly in the middle of nowhere that many county residents donít even know itís there." (Most county residents live below the ridgeline, hence "out-of-sight-out-of-mind").

Although the airport has only 3 employees, Ingalls Field has served many general aviation needs and special guests over the years. Apart from playing host to President Bill Clinton, who arrived on a DC-9 in the Winter of 2000, the airfield continues to accommodate general aviation aircrafts with an average 31 aircraft per day. From 2009 stats, 81% of these are transient, 12% military and 8% local traffic.

Because the airport is situated atop the ridgeline with an aircraft carrier-type runway (drop off at each end) and unforgiving wind shear factors, it is an ideal location for military operations including aircraft testing and intermittent Touch and Gos. According to the airport engineer, wind shear frequently occurs at the airport when wind hits the side of the mountain and rides up one side and goes down on the other. If not careful or fully aware, an aircraft that flies into the wind current gets pushed down along with it.

In 1976, Ingalls Field had its only major airport tragedy due to bad weather (low visibility) when an aircraft carrying 11 people collided with the mountain 500ft below the runway. The pilot with 11 executives of Johnson and Johnson company made 2 failed landing attempts before striking the mountain on the 3rd killing all on board.
