This meet was the official opening and grand celebration of the Portland Airport on Sept. 28 and 29, 1928. Although the airport was called Portland Airport, it was located in Scarborough on a 220 acre parcel of land located at the end of Libby Road. A decade later the airport became obsolete because it could not expand its runway to meet the demand of the larger aircraft. Today the site is the location of the Scarborough Industrial park.Show Details
