COMMENTS
Founded by Glenn Curtiss in 1927. Once the World's busiest airport in 1967 with over 650,000 flight operations. Part of U.S. Navy training command during WWII and the hub of 6 Navel training bases. Amelia Earhart took off on her ill fated Round the World Flight attempt in 1937 from the former Miami Municipal Airport, located near the Airport's main entrance. Numerous historic aircraft and buildings still on site. U.S. Navy Dirigible "Akron" crashed in a thunderstorm on it's 1933 return flight north after leaving Opa-locka.
