COULD MEIGS FIELD MAKE A COMEBACK?
LONGSHOT MAYORAL CANDIDATE SUPPORTS REOPENING THE CHICAGO AIRPORT
February 14, 2019 By Amelia Walsh
It’s alive! Or at least it might be, should Chicagoans elect mayoral candidate Willie Wilson in the city’s upcoming 2019 election.
Reopening one of the most iconic general aviation airports in the
country, formerly known as Meigs Field, is on the businessman’s
10-point agenda. https://www.williewilsonformayor.com/willie_wilson_s_10_point_plan?locale=en

As a 40-acre nature reserve and concert venue, the once roaring
airfield has been pushing up daisies for nearly 15 years.
“Now, when there is a race to produce new types of flying
transportation called ‘V-TOL’s’ that operate like a large drone or small helicopter, already in use in some places and the explosion of
small jet aircraft travel, including ‘shared ride’ services, this
airport could be exactly the facility that a growing modern city
needs,” Wilson said.
