It’s a sure bet that if martial law is declared, or if we’re invaded, or whatever, the first things that will be seized are going to be the media outlets and the local airports – one to control the news going out and the other to transport supplies or base their aircraft.
There’s a handy little tool available to give you the details on your local airport, it’s called AirNav and it gives you all the information that a pilot (or “curious” Patriot) needs, and I do mean all the information you need. Here’s an example about my local airport:

That’s just a small sample of what it offers. You want radio frequencies? It’s there. Satellite pictures and/or maps? Average traffic? What weights the runways can handle? Nearby obstructions? How it’s lit? All of it is there. It even gives you distance to nearby airports and landing fields, whether they’re private or public.
There’s a fair amount of crop dusting businesses in this area and it lists every one that I know about as well.
Keep in mind this is a just a tool. Don’t rely strictly on this, you’ve got to go out and eyeball it yourself. Do your recons. Find out how it can be approached on foot, what cover and concealment is available, nearest roads, etc. A word of caution: Don’t get caught taking pictures – the feds take a dim view of that.
I’ll leave you with this bit of wisdom: Without heavy machine guns or shoulder fired missiles, it’s a hell of a lot easier to destroy aircraft on the ground than it is while they’re attacking you. Enough said.
