Saving Brookeridge

Nearly closed. Now thriving.

Brookeridge Airpark (LL22), in Downers Grove, Ill., is the closest residential airport to Chicago. Now thriving, it’s hard to believe that this airpark was on the verge of being closed in the late 1960s.

“In the early 1950s, pilot Austin Talbert had a vision to create a residential airpark where pilots could live with their airplanes. He purchased the 23-acre Brookeridge airport with its single grass strip and surrounding farmland.” Read the rest of “Saving Brookeridge” at the General Aviation News website.
