Easton Airport is owned and operated by Talbot County and provides essential access for aviation enthusiasts, corporate pilots, and local businesses. Constructed for use by the military during World War II, today Easton Airport is one of the busiest general aviation facilities in Maryland, linking Talbot County to the entire country and to the world.
On this walking tour, Mike Henry, Airport Manager for the past 14 years, will tour you through Newnam Field and learn what a local airport can mean to the community. Who uses it? Who works there? How is it funded? You will also learn what has been done to make the airport an environmentally good neighbor.
The walking tour includes Spitfire LTD, a collection of beautifully restored WWII fighter craft.
Participants are invited to lunch on their own at Sugar Buns Airport Café inside the airport after the tour.
Please provide your own transportation and meet Mike Henry in the terminal building at 10 am.
