A researcher called the Archives looking for information on the defunct Chicagoland Airport once located in the Half Day/Lincolnshire area. After checking the newsclipping files and finding only a couple of references, I remembered a website I had stumbled across doing research on the Haley Army Airfield at Fort Sheridan.
The website Abandoned and Little Known Airfields is a fantastic source for vanished airports throughout the country. And indeed, the site had a good deal of information, maps and aerial photos about the former Chicagoland airport which began its life as a U.S. Navy flight training airfield about 1945.
