|Bollinger Airport was
located where the Army Reserve building is behind Wal-Mart on
Corridor G. It ran about from the Marquee Cinemas to the
Army building. It opened in the mid 40s and closed around 1960
61. It also supported motorcycle hill climb races in the later
years, and the state hill climb championship in 1958.
|Although it looks rough, the runway was a fairly smooth sandy surface.|
is my Uncle by marriage, John Boone Harris. He was a first rate
mechanic all his life, including aircraft, and midget cars. This
is a car he built and is testing it out at Bollinger Airport.

|Flying buses? Yes, Greyhound thought of flying bus passengers by helicopter!|
|Of course, like all airports of it's day, there were crashes...|
