Phoenix Goodyear Airport is located in Goodyear, Arizona, a short distance Southwest from Phoenix. It is operated by the Phoenix Aviation Department. The airport was built in 1943 and originally operated by the U.S.Navy. The aircraft division of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company was located at the airfield, as well. It was used as a storage facility for military aircraft for a time also. Some improvements are currently under way, and the airport is considered a reliever airport for Phoenix's Sky Harbor airport. A new terminal building opened in March 2000. The airport does not have commercial airliner traffic, however many airliners can be seen at the airports repair station.
The airport is used mainly for general aviation, some maintenance, and is home to Lufthansa's Airline Flight Training Center here in Arizona.
The photos on this page represent some of the aircraft that have stopped by Goodyear Airport (GYR).


Scrapped...

Ex-Hawaiian Douglas DC-10, N146AA meets the end of the road.
What's left of the nose section is seen here,
being reduced to a pile of rubble in February 2002.
