Comments about: The Jenny refuels at Columbia/Adair County Airport

By Mike Watson

The recent 'Jenny' photos and story as well as the memory of Streeval Field makes for a renewed interest in a topic we discussed some weeks back.

Can readers share their memories of Streeval Field?

There is little history of this significant institution outside a few newspaper photos and short story items. Enquiring minds still want more.

Briefly: In mid-1945 land was leased from Mr. T.A. Streeval, of Christine, to be developed into an airport, operated by the Columbia Flying Service.

Several (or many) individuals from this and surrounding counties learned to fly from instructors here.
