Here’s a photo from the archives that captures an early view of the City airport with some summertime strollers. The first plane landed in Cordova in 1929 and from that point on Cordovans were hooked on flight service! In 1934, Cordova dedicated its city airstrip. The landing field parallel to the lake was great for wheeled planes, pontoons and in the winter the freezing lake made it perfect for skis.
This photo came from the archives and collections of the Cordova Historical Society.
