Sunset at the Monroeville Airport Harold W Brown Memorial Field
Pittsburgh–Monroeville Airport is a public-use airport located one nautical mile (1.8 km) north of the central business district of Monroeville, in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, United States. The airport is privately owned by estate of Helen M. Brown and is also known as the Harold W. Brown Memorial Field.
The airport no longer offers aviation fuel for sale, but 2,000 planes land and take off at the airport every year, according to Weible. Pilots pay $3 on the honor system to defray the expenses of mowing the grass and maintaining the runway for an overnight stay.
The airport also hosts a gathering every other year for the Aero Club of Pittsburgh. The airport buildings also serve as the meeting place for Cadet Squad 604 of the Civil Air Patrol.
The airfield was used as a filming location in a pivotal scene in the 1978 horror film Dawn of the Dead. Managed for the past eighteen years by Raymond J. Weible.BUY A FRAMED PRINT
