  Welch Airport, West Virginia

From Ken Scarberry: "The Welch airport was on Belcher Mountain which was the mountain behind Superior #3 mines or what we called Hylton Hill. When I grew up the airport was dirt but later paved."

"Cap's Plane", Welch Airport, West Virginia

Cap's full name is never given but a previous resident Ken Scarberry, recalls his name as Caparossi (spelling unsure). Ken thinks Cap might have been a doctor, living in Welch. Cap came and flew his planes on the weekends. Mr. Scarberry has even flown in one of Cap's planes! Thanks for the memories, Ken!
