1929 - Ground breaking ceremony Curtiss Flying Service / Pitcairn Aviation (later Eastern Air Lines) hangar - Miami Municipal

Miami Municipal Airport, Dade County view map


Pitcairn Aviation was the predecessor company to Eastern Air Lines and according to state archives Eastern also used this hangar.

Miami Municipal Airport was located on the east side of LeJeune Road (E. 8th Avenue in Hialeah, NW 42nd Avenue in Dade County) from the canal at E. 52 Street north to E. 65 Street (NW 106 Street to NW 119 Street in Dade County) and west of the railroad tracks separating it from All-American Airport/Master's Field. See other photos for aerial views of the airport along with diagrams showing street numbers. Typical of the way things go in Dade County, nothing is left of the airport and it is now occupied by the City of Hialeah Police Headquarters and auto garage along with a large UPS sorting facility.
