I've made that landing, too. A serous pucker factor there!Revolver came from just a bit west of Hazard in Laurel county.
I have flown into the old Hazard airport, in a tight valley alongside the north fork of the Kentucky river. One way in and one way out, it was cross the field, drop in between the hills on downwind, follow the river around on base leg, not seeing the runway again until turning final. No go around. At 2300 feet long, I thought I had done a good job the first time landing there in a Cessna 180, until I saw a couple coal company King Airs based there.
