Meridian Regional Airport
Established in 1930, the Meridian Regional Airport has serviced Meridian and central Mississippi. This civil-military airfield began with a dirt runway, hangar and terminal and was operated by Al and Fred Key.
They also operated the Key Brothers' Flying School from the airport. The Key's successfully flew a Curtis Robin monoplane, named "Ole Miss", for 27 days without stopping. They made 435 mid-air refueling contacts and traveled 52,320 miles. The "Old Miss" is on display in the National Air & Space Museum, in a permanent exhibit.
Visit Key Field, to view the Key's hangar and offices, listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The 186th Air Refueling Wing of the Mississippi Air National Guard operates cargo and aerial refueling aircraft from its home base, at the airport. The majority of the airport traffic is for general aviation use, although one commercial airline offers flights from the airport.
