This week in history: Lantana Airport opens

The first plane landed on the newly paved runway at the Lantana Airport on Aug. 20, 1941. The airport, now known as Palm Beach County Park Airport, was expanded to accommodate civilian air traffic when nearby Morrison Field, now Palm Beach International Airport, was turned over to the military during World War II.
