There is a clue on Warner Avenue near Bolsa Chica: a small street that leads into the shopping center where Ralphs is, next to McDonald’s, called Airport Circle.
Many of you may know what that means, but I’m sure there are also a lot of newcomers that are oblivious (just as I was when I moved here) to the fact that Airport Circle is named that because it was once the entranceway to an intimate little airstrip named Meadowlark Airport.
I attended the tenants meeting tonight. Not much to say. The City of Rialto took over the airport in 8/05. The 2008 recession stopped the plan to turn the airport into a mixed development as planned. They had something going for them and got messed up when California eliminated the redevelopment authorities. So they had to get through that and find money from another source.

Lodi Airport and Cafe – a great place for kids and adults – If you’re looking for a place where kids can experience an airport the way it used to be in the 1940s and 1950s, check out Lodi Airport, located along Highway 99 in Acampo. According to owner Robert Kupka, the airport started in 1929 with one dirt runway which was paved in the 1940s, and in the 1960s a second runway was added. Mr. Kupka purchased the airport in 1978, and since that time has added hangars and outbuildings. The Airport Cafe, newly renovated in 2012, graces the frontage road. The airport and cafe are both open seven days a week.Read More
