Trekking the Tarmac: The Impact of 9/11

Saturday, September 18, 2021

Join us for a second Trekking the Tarmac tour. This tour is going to focus on how the events of 9/11 impacted the Airport in regards to vetting, flight zones, and security. During this tour, you will learn why the Airport is the world's oldest continuously operating airport! 

You've walked inside an airport but have you ever wanted to walk on the runway? Take a guided, outside walking tour of the College Park Airport. This is the oldest continuously operating airport in the world. Learn about the many "firsts" that happened at the Airport. These milestones include the first military aviation training facility and the first airmail flight. Discover how the Airport is used today. Guest must be able to walk at least an hour on uneven, outside surfaces
