Santa Monica Airport

Situated on the sparkling Southern California coastline, Santa Monica Municipal Airport (KSMO) is the oldest operating airport in Los Angeles County with a heritage dating back to 1919, in the pioneering days of Barn Stormers and Wing Walkers. The first circumnavigation of the world by air, accomplished by the U.S. Army with Douglas World Cruisers, took off from Clover Field on St. Patrick’s day, March 17, 1924, and returned there after some 28,000 miles. For many years the airport was home to The Douglas Aircraft Company. Douglas manufactured the entire “DC” series of reciprocating-engine-powered airliners at Santa Monica, including many thousands of the iconic C-47 (military version of the DC-3) during WWII.
