Ex Ottawa military field becoming residential airpark

A former military airstrip near Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, is about to get a makeover as it is converted into a 326-home airpark. Named Tailwind Estates, the plan calls for 31 runway lots (average price $182,000) in the mix.

The runway will be 4,000 feet long and homes are expected to range from $500,000 to $2 million.
