Tamiami Airport Opens

Original Tamiami AirportRecords show that Tamiami Airport was built sometime between 1944 and 1947 and featured 3 short runways.  The airport was on land adjacent to Tamiami Trail.  While this location was the original home, the location was relocated to a site more suitable in 1967.
