Meacham Airport, celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, is having a little work done. The airport, an aviation pioneer which established Fort Worth as a home for military and American Airlines planes, is getting new hangars, a bigger administration building and a renovated terminal as it moves towards a century of operations.
“We have invested heavily at Meacham, recently in the [terminal] renovations, and we have some great tenants that have been there for years,” said Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price. “Meacham has great history. American had some of its first flights out there and we continue to see significant growth at the airport.”
Although commercial airplanes stopped flying out of Meacham in 1953, the municipal airport has survived by catering to private pilots, flight schools and now, larger corporate jets.
