Cable Airport Acts as Alternative to L.A./ONT

Comparing overhead photographs of Upland’s Cable Airport shows the enormous growth in the area since Dewey Cable started the place back in 1945. “Back then it was mostly brush and lemon groves,” said Bob Cable, Dewey’s grandson, and the third generation to run this privately owned airfield. Today, however, this well-run and tidy place at the foot of the mountains, acts as an alternative to the busy commercial Ontario airport nearby.
