Airplane Boneyard at Laurinburg-Maxton Airport in North Carolina


Laurinburg-Maxton Airport (KMEB)

The Laurenburg-Maxton Airport is located approximately 35 miles southwest of Fayetteville, North Carolina. The airfield was originally built for the U.S. Army Air Force during World War II as a training base for glider-towing aircraft.

Several airliners from Northwest Orient were last reported in storage at the airport. At one time, 727s, DC-10 and a 747 were stored onsite. The storage and salvage area is operated by Charlotte Aircraft Corporation.

No public access to the storage area is permitted, and trespassers can be arrested. As always, we highly recommend obeying all warning signs and avoiding restricted areas.

The airport is also the site of numerous companies in the industrial park, which spans over 1,800 acres. It is also used by the Army parachute team Golden Knights. Runway 5/23 is 6,500 feet in length, 100 feet wide.

The physical address 16701 Airport Road, Maxton, North Carolina 28364. For information, phone the airport at 910.844.5081, or visit the Laurinburg-Maxton Airport website.
