“The Youngstown–Warren Regional Airport began as the Youngstown Municipal Airport (MAP), and was one of the last Works Progress Administration projects. Construction began in 1939 and the airport opened a year later. The airport is 11 miles north of Youngstown in Vienna Center because during the 1930s and 1940s, there was little room inside the city limits for an airport the size of the one planned.” (Wikipedia)
