Birchwood-Pocono Airpark where Pennsylvania sniper found

1 November, 2014

US marshals nabbed Eric Frein, charged in a deadly sniper attack outside the Blooming Grove state police barracks. A task force of U.S. Marshals Service worked to clear an abandoned resort. About two hours in, they approached the hangar at the old Birchwood-Pocono Airpark. “We just had a hunch that if we were on the run, this is a place we would hide,” Birchwood Pocono Airpark is located east of the intersection of Cherry Lane Road & T535, Tannersville, Pa. The prevailing winds favored taking off to the west. The runway has a significant uphill slope in that direction & points you towards rising hills. After a ‘few’ accidents the resort decided to close the runway due to the liability involved. The runway today has extensive grass growing through the concrete.”
