Burdett Field - 1920's

Some very early photos of Burdett Field at 9401 So. Western Avenue, later Burdett Airlines in which Jack Frye was able to purchase and begin his historic march toward Airline history. All of this beginning in Southern California, what is now called Inglewood. Miss Hughston above probably flew Jacks Standard Airlines into Burdett Field to do her shopping in LA, then fly back to Tuscon.

The old field as shown today in 2013. The building with the white frontal area, the Jesse Owens public pool is presumed to be the location of one of the original hangers. Boy if Jack could see his old piece of land now! More on Burdett field coming.
