Torrance Airport

Torrance Airport, aka Zamperini Field, was a subject of the Torrance City Planning Commission the evening of 21 April. I had initially misunderstood the proposal to reduce the roadway leading into the airport. It was not the road into the Gen Av Ctr (GAC) that was to be reduced, but the main entrance road from the Pacific Coast Highway (I believe this was the original south boundary of the Army Airfield in WW II) leading to the entry road to the GAC.

The ownership of the airport has been resolved following a court case in which the original owner attempted to reclaim the airport due to nonpayment (on the mortgage) by the buyer. The present owner bought the airport some two or more years ago and, after starting a flight school, renovating a motel and the restaurant, found that he was not earning enough from the operation to have it pay its way.
