Located at Seattle.
Opened in 1928 to serve as a municipal airport, as a testing and delivery facility for the Boeing Company, and as a major air freight center for industries in the region. The airfield was Seattle's main passenger until Seattle-Tacoma International Airport was buit in the late 1940s.
During World War II, Boeing Field was taken over by the U. S. Government and was the first take off location for Boeing aircraft built during the war years on their ferry flights elsewhere.
Boeing continues to use the field for testing and delivery of its airplanes, and it is still a major regional cargo hub. It is also the regional selected landing zone for Air Force One when it visits the Seattle area.
