    Yeah...looks like a winner too. The steps vs parking lot vs tennis court. The apts across the street with the high 2nd floor window. Looks like the scene building had a brick wall with writing on it, gone now. That's awesome!

    Many location shots filmed there — not too far from the studio!

    I don’t think we found that one... just the apartment that Sue Ellen finds for her. It was at 3618 Gillespie St in Dallas.

    In S11E05 Bobby looks for the now missing Pam. He goes to a small airport.

    Where was the airport? There are not a lot of clues, but I could see a poster for the Plano Balloon Festival and I could see the house across the street with the birdhouse window as Bobby pulled in. Following the filming pattern, this is early in the season and should be a Texas location.

    0A5740B2-2084-4717-85D1-CDC150E6DE07.jpeg

    Looking for current airports turned up nothing. I ran across a website that discussed closed airfields (http://www.airfields-freeman.com/TX/Airfields_TX_Dallas_N.htm) and there was one listed in Plano! The webpage said that houses have now filled the area where the airfield used to be.

    EA0DE6B3-3336-46FE-8C29-A75B71B54738.jpeg

    Using their information I could find the general area, but I was stuck on confirming it with the house shown in the background. After all, anyone could have a poster with the Plano Balloon Festival! I looked for homes with the distinctive window across the street from where the airfield should have been. I only looked for homes on the end of the street that directly face the street and my search came up empty.

    Tonight I wondered if the home we see in the background isn’t on the end of the block. What if there was an empty lot where a new house could have been built since the scene was filmed? I started looking for the distinctive window on the second house of the streets across from the old airfield.

    I it didn’t take long to find a match! On Gent Drive, I found the house with the distinctive birdhouse window. Sure enough, it is now the second house on the block.

    Now we know the airport scene was filmed at now-gone Dallas North Airport in Plano, Texas!

    the only way to find it might be to drive around Dallas until that Sanford and Son theme, er, “homage” that John Parker wrote for the scene starts playing!

    We did the Plano Balloon Fest once. Weather didn’t cooperate though — it wasn’t very eventful since the balloons couldn’t be blown up.

    The packed housing around the Brinkmann Ranch in Frisco, TX is astounding. You can also see the packed housing around Southfork.

    But the Brinkmann Ranch is still approximately 1 section (1 square mile).

    Southfork used to be approximately 1 section, but now has home sites on its section.

    J.R. Looks for Clayton when he thinks Clayton and Jessica worked together to kill Amy, Clayton’s first wife. He confronts Clayton and Ray in a restaurant parking lot.

    This used to be the Crest House Family Restaurant. The clues were located in the reflection on J.R.’s hood. The building still stands, but an addition has changed the side of the building seen on screen.

    It is located at 12517 Washington in Los Angeles.

    You are too much, jm10. That's an awesome eye you have! This has to be one of the most obscure finds yet based on a clue.
