Constructed in early 1960, the airport never seen a better time but has remained grassy, neglected, and unmaintained.

Almost 58 years had gone, 5 governors paraded in succession, the provincial government neglected the airport which has turned into grazing land for cattle and carabaos.

A report says, the national government is still allocating funds for airport maintenance, but it looks untouched, grassy and unmaintained. [BicolToday.com]


  1. Amazing to see this Bacon Airport been neglected. Just known today by reading your article that the National Government has allocated funds for maintenance. Who should be maintaining this airport? Where are the funds for 58 years allocated for this airport for maintenance. I grew up in Bacon, Sorsogon. Never seen that this airport has been used once. I am here now in U.S. and glad to know that you made an article about this airport. Hope to know more in the future what will the government do about it.

    Thank you.
