brief look in the past...
International airport opened on May 1, 1929, on an abandoned nine-hole
golf course. It was called Merle Fogg Field, in memory of the pioneer
Fort Lauderdale aviator*. The thunder of World War II brought big
changes to the sleepy little airport. The Navy purchased it, and
quickly began improving the airfield and constructing military barracks.
was designed to train pilots of aircraft-carrier based torpedo attack
planes. At the peak of effort, 3,600 Naval personnel were stationed
at the facility. After the War, the airport remained dormant for three
years, and then it was acquired by Broward County and operated as
a general aviation facility. In 1953, Mackey Airlines began passenger
service. Since its humble beginnings, the airport has grown into a
modern air transportation facility, serving the needs of the air traveling
public in Broward, southern Palm Beach and north Dade Counties.
