Pine Island Airport
a view from the south east at about 1,500 ft in 2003.  Since then Wayne has eliminated the orange grove to the south of the hangars and Hurricane Charlie eliminated the hangars.


This picture is from the same angle at 1 mile out and 2,000 ft. You can see water on both sides of the island.

The airport doesn't look like much from the air

It is 18.85 acres of Agricultural Island in the Lee Islands which run up the Gulf Coast from Bonita Bay, Estero (Ft Myers Beach), Sanibel, Captiva, North Captiva, to Cayo Costa, Gasparilla and many inner islands to include Pine Island, Useppa and Cabbage Key where it is said Jimmy Buffet wrote "Cheese Burger in Paradise"
