White Mountain Airport (former) Development – North Conway NH

Description

“In 1934, Wylie Apte accepted their offer and became the manager of the airport operations at the White Mountain Airport. Wylie persuaded the White Mountain Airport Corporation to clear away the trees so that he could taxi near the highway, and in 1935 a WPA project cleared off the stumps and enlarged the runway to 1,500 feet (460 m).”

The WPA also constructed a hangar at the airport.

No longer in operation, the airport is no longer extant.
