A photograph of the Rodeo Intermediate Field from 1947 surfaced and was posted on Abandoned and Little-Known Airfields: Southwestern New Mexico. Originally appearing in the June 1947 issue of Skyways Magazine the image is of a new Piper Cub, on a ferry flight to California, parked in front of the radio tower at the Rodeo Intermediate field and the image shows the Peloncillo Mountains south of Highway 9 in the background. This view of the mountains in combination with concrete foundations and footings, especially the fuel tank stand which is still in existence, on the site allows the original location of the photograph to be relocated. This was done and the view reproduced 65 years later. Both views can be compared to one another and it is clear that although the towers and buildings are gone the view remains the same. As a side note, still awaiting the installation of the new historical marker by the state at the site.
