Warbird Park – Myrtle Beach, SC

As always, we like to take a moment to salute our brave men and women of the armed forces and, so, yesterday we paid our respects at Warbird Park in Myrtle Beach, SC – a small park to recognize the service of members of the Myrtle Beach Army Air Field (1940-1947) and the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base (until 1993 and its closure as a military base).  Today, the airfield is Myrtle Beach International Airport and much of the old base has been developed into a mixed use commercial/residential area called Market Commons.  If you would like to know more about this base, we recommend this article from Wikipedia.

Whoa, Qannik, when hu-dad said we were going to see a warthog, I didn’t know he meant a jet.

    I was actually born on that base and my dad was one of the guys who closed it. We miss it very much. Happy to know people are still enjoying it!
