Kim Jong Un destroys another of his private airports near mansion compound

North Korean leader last demolished two runways in 2019 to make room for new horse tracks

Kim Jong Un’s love of flying appears to be fading, as another of the North Korean leader’s private airports near one of his mansion compounds was destroyed in recent months, according to a new NK News analysis of satellite imagery. 

Kim appeared to suddenly become interested in flying small planes to his various mansion compounds around the country in 2014, as he had at least four small private runways built in the span of a year.
