Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (SAV) isn’t a particularly unusual airport. It’s got 15 gates and is served by Delta, JetBlue, United, American, American Eagle, Air Canada, Allegiant and Sun Country airlines. It serves as the world headquarters for Gulfstream Aerospace, and the Georgia Air National Guard’s 165th Airlift Wing is based at SAV. The airport handled a respectable 2.8 million commercial airline passengers in 2018 and is the second largest airport in the state of Georgia, only behind ATL because, let’s face it, it would take one HECK of an airport to be bigger than ATL.
However, SAV does have one little factoid that no other airport in the country has. Its 9,350-foot Runway 10 is thought to be the only active airport runway in the United States, and possibly the world, with marked gravestones in it.

If you search the internet enough, you can find a ghost story about almost anywhere. I try to avoid these stories if I can. I’ve talked about how I feel about ghosts before, so I’d prefer to avoid spending the night with them if I can.

One of my guilty pleasures is watching ghost hunting shows. I DVR episodes of Ghost Adventures (and previously Ghost Hunters – may the show R.I.P.) and snuggle with our dog on the bed while I listen to the EVPs and slamming doors. I’ve even gotten to the point where I can hear the spirit voices before they replay them with the subtitles. I think I like watching these shows because I’m pretty sure I used to live in a house where I had some spiritual co-inhabitants. It was a house built in 1928 on the farmland of one of the city founders. I never felt anything evil or menacing, just an occasional presence over my shoulder, watching what I was doing. There were also the times where lights I know I turned off were back on. Not just once or twice, but more like a weekly occurrence. I really noticed the difference when I moved and the feeling of being watched was gone. It was the strangest thing and it’s impossible to describe if you’ve never experienced it.
Alas, Sharon doesn’t share my enthusiasm in ghosts and the paranormal, but over the years, I’ve managed to get her to go to a number of haunted locations. Some of them because they had another appeal to her tastes and other times we were led there as part of a tour package. I didn’t care, we were going ghost hunting!
