Haunted Airport Motel - Low Pass Only!
The Stone Castle Airport and Resort is now CLOSED and HAUNTED!

Flew there today and tried to land, but...the motel has partially collapsed and debris are on the very narrow runway! LOW PASS ONLY.

A horrific crime took place here several years ago and the place is HAUNTED now, the locals say. I tried to fly in to see for myself, but as if on cue, the motel collapsed and part of it is on the already short and narrow runway, which blocked me from landing - too bad or I would have a more comprehensive report.

The runway looks pretty rough and there are now two strip joints surrounding the once proud airport - too bad, as this is near GREAT hiking, skiing, canoeing and the great outdoors of this part of PA.

Don't plan to land here - but it is worthy of a LOW PASS to see what was once a great airport destination!

Here is the background on the heinous murders which took place at this airport hotel.....it is really a sad story!

Children Shot Dead in Columbia County

By Andy Hirsch - Wnep.com

January 24, 2006

Two children are dead and their parents in the hospital with gunshot wounds. Police blame a domestic dispute for the violence.

Police were called to the Stone Castle Motel near Bloomsburg just before 9 a.m. Tuesday. Inside they found two young children dead and their parents with gunshot wounds.

By Tuesday night, investigators blamed the husband for the shootings. They have not released his identity but they did identify the children as James Dick, 18 months and Creed Vincent, 4. Their mother, Betty Dick, 27, is recovering from her wounds.

Police said it all happened around 4:30 a.m. at the motel just off Route 11 between Bloomsburg and Danville.

Police spent the day gathering evidence. Emergency workers helped troopers take away the victims' bodies.

A neighbor who heard the gunshots called 911 after a woman covered in blood came to her door. That neighbor said the woman's estranged husband shot her, her children and then turned the gun on himself.

Workers at the motel said Betty Dick and her children moved there by themselves less than a month ago.

Police are treating the shootings as homicides. They believe everyone involved was inside the room when they arrived and they are not looking for any other suspects at this time.

Sources said Betty Dick has a protection from abuse order against her husband but police were being very tight lipped about what happened at the motel, even telling reporters to stop asking questions about the shooting.
