Airplanes In Driveways!

Does your garage or driveway have an airplane in it? Where in the Florida Keys can an entire community park their personal airplanes in front of their homes and pull directly onto an unfenced runway? I’ve found just that! Look close at the photo and you can see at least four planes. Oh yeah, why not throw in an airplane mailbox for good measure while you’re at it! 🙂 (seen below)

What a great drive this is, once off the main road take 10-minutes of your trip and admire this unique atmosphere! Photographed below is a garage built specifically for housing a plane. Seen to the left in the featured photo shows an airplane’s cockpit covered up awaiting its next upward flight… once the rain stops! Yes I got wet taking the photos but that’s part of  the job… it was worth seeing even in the Key’s liquid sunshine! 🙂

You can find this one-of-a-kind Florida Key’s ‘Airplanes In Driveways’ with an unprotected airport runway on US-1 at Mile Marker 25.0 turning onto West Shore Drive, go down .2 miles till you see the runway on your right sandwiched in-between North Airport Drive & South Airport Drive. Remember, DON’T turn onto the runway, as the sign says: ‘DANGER, ACTIVE RUNWAY DO NOT ENTER’… it could be hazardous to your health!
