Montgomery Airport: A Brief History Timeline

  • The first commercial air services in Montgomery operated at Maxwell Field, a military facility founded by the Wright Brothers west of the city.
  • To provide for commercial aviation the City of Montgomery opened its original municipal airport in 1929 east of the city. This facility was later named Gunter Field and was served by a predecessor of American Airlines. Eastern Air Lines subsequently took over service at Gunter.
  • In 1940 the War Department chose Gunter Field for a new pilot training facility. Gunter quickly became congested, Eastern Airlines was forced to move temporarily to Maxwell, and the city purchased a tract southwest of downtown on US 80 to replace Gunter for civilian aviation.
  • Separately, the Army Air Forces identified a need for seven auxiliary fields in the vicinity of Gunter and the city and USAAF agreed that the city's newly purchased site would also serve as Gunter's auxiliary field #6.
  • It opened in 1943 and was named for ENS Clarence Moore Dannelly Jr., USN, a Navy pilot killed in a 1940 training accident and considered to be the first casualty of World War II from Montgomery.
  • The old Army Air Forces hangars are now part of the Montgomery Aviation complex. The original three runways and their original dimensions were:
