Images of Aviation: Midway Airport

Tuesday, October 6 at 7 p.m.


Midway Airport stands on one square mile of land nine miles southwest of the Chicago Loop. Once referred to as the world's busiest airport, it birthed the dreams of hundreds of thousands. Visitors, would-be fliers and air travelers hugged the cyclone fence of the south terminal and later, the observation deck of the north terminal ... and stood to watch in awe and wonder as the aerial ballet and a symphony of roaring radial and turboprop engines played out before them. Author, David Kent remembers Midway Airport tonight. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
