It's sad to see 17/35 closing down. I've made hundreds of TO's and Ldgs. on it. It served well when the winds were strong from N or S.

I suspect the golfers @ Puerto del Sol GC will be happy about that.

The N/S runway used to have the ILS (Instrument Landing System) on it to avoid flying toward the Sandia's or having to drop too sharply after crossing the Sandia's under low visibility conditions. I wonder if they have relocated it to another runway.
