The Roswell International Air Center covers an area of 5,029 acres with two paved runways. The site is the storage facility for many of American Airlines’ retired Airbus A300-600R wide body jetliners. It was previously used to launch stratospheric balloons for Air Force projects and was also used by Felix Baumgartner to launch his record-breaking freefall jump from the stratosphere in October last year.
