On a trip to Pennsylvania I happened to notice the signs to Kutztown airport.  It was an overcast day, and the ceiling was too low to go for a ride, but I did some poking around anyway.  They've got sailplanes, power planes, ultralights and just about anything else that will get airborne around.  In addition, they have a runway that is just beyond belief - better be sure of your glide slope on this one!

And here's that runway - it's worth loading the full-size image of this one to see "the bump".
