Armstrong Field

This was the site of one of the earliest airports in the Memphis area. Named for Lt. Guion Armstrong, a Memphis pilot killed in World War I, it was dedicated Nov. 11, 1926. Charles A. Lindbergh landed here on Oct. 3, 1927 (four months after his epic, non-stop solo New York-to-Paris flight) as part of his 82-city tour promoting acceptance of the airplane as a dependable mode of transportation.
