A 5/15/48 USGS aerial view depicted Carolina Skypark perhaps soon after its construction, with a single unpaved northeast/southwest runway which appeared to be newly-cleared, and a single arch-roof hangar on the northwest side. The last aeronautical chart depiction which has been located of Carolina Skypark was on the February 1950 Charlotte Sectional Chart, and as having a 1,900' unpaved runway. Carolina Air Park was evidently closed (for reasons unknown) at some point between 1950-52.
