    Hawaii Moving Forward To Close Dillingham

    Businesses and users based at Hawaiis scenic and historic Dillingham
    Airfield are marshaling support to reverse the states decision to
    close it next year. The state had planned to close the field in June
    2020 but pushed it back a year to June 2021, according to
    HawaiiNewsNow. The field is home to gliding and skydiving operations
    comprising nearly a dozen businesses.

    It was originally named Mokule?ia Airfield and was famously the runway
    from which P-40s took off to defend Pearl Harbor against the Dec. 7,
    1941, attack. It was renamed Dillingham after a B-29 crewman who was
    killed in action over Japan. The U.S. Army still owns the field, but
    the state of Hawaii has leased it for the past 25 years. Now the state
    wants it to revert to Army control. The Army still uses the airfield
    for training exercises.

    Theres jobs here. Its 130 people Theres nearly a dozen
    businesses. Their lifes investment is on the verge of being
    eradicated, state Sen. Gil Riviere told HawaiiNewsNow. Dillingham is
    located on the North Shore of Oahu about 28 miles northwest of
    Honolulu. Airport tenants and aviation officials say the business
    wont be able to relocate on the island.
