K. I. Sawyer Air Force Base

K. I. Sawyer Air Force Base is a decommissioned U.S. Air Force base in Marquette County, Michigan, southeast of the city of Marquette. The base, near the center of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, operated for nearly forty years and closed in 1995. The county airport, Sawyer International, now occupies a portion of the base and has scheduled airline flights and some general aviation activity. The area of the former base is now an unincorporated community and a census-designated place for statistical purposes known as K. I. Saywer AFB

Famous quotes containing the words base, force, air and/or sawyer:

    One does not jump, and spring, and shout hurrah! at hearing one has got a fortune, one begins to consider responsibilities, and to ponder business; on a base of steady satisfaction rise certain grave cares, and we contain ourselves, and brood over our bliss with a solemn brow.
    Charlotte Brontë (1816–1855)

    Applause that comes thundering with such force you might think the audience merely suffers the music as an excuse for its ovations.
    Greil Marcus (b. 1945)

    Converse with a mind that is grandly simple, and literature looks like word-catching. The simplest utterances are worthiest to be written, yet are they so cheap, and so things of course, that, in the infinite riches of the soul, it is like gathering a few pebbles off the ground, or bottling a little air in a phial, when the whole earth and the whole atmosphere are ours.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    But that’s always the way; it don’t make no difference whether you do right or wrong, a person’s conscience ain’t got no sense, and just goes for him anyway.... It takes up more room than all the rest of a person’s insides, and yet ain’t no good, nohow. Tom Sawyer thinks the same.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
