Spokane International Airport (Geiger Field) – Spokane WA

Description

Previously known as Sunset Field, the property was renamed Geiger Field in 1941 and eventually became the Spokane International Airport. After the city leased the area to the military in 1939, the WPA and the army jointly cleared and leveled the land and prepared the runways.
