Stormville is where the airport is or was; that the late, great, “French Connection” aerobatic team called home. We drove through Stormville every Sunday on the way to Dover, and I was always excited to look at the aircraft. I saw the “French connection” do an airshow at this little backwater crop dusting field in Marlboro New York in the early ’70’s, and that very day took my first aerobatic flight at Kobelt Airport in a Stearman biplane.
Stormville, I go to the BIG flee market there!!
Gota prison up the street too!!

Green Haven prison,
Yes the airport is about a mile from my house and if I could win the $$$ lottery $$$ it would be turned into a Drag Strip overnight!!!! and would call it “Stormville Strip” !!! theres more then enough room and plenty of shut down ! do think the thought hasnt crossed my mine !! it does everytime I go over there to the flea market !! Mite not be a bad place to have a future Dover Drag Strip meet ……… just and Idea since there is so much room …………. ❓
