Bader Field Tower Donated to Air Museum - Cape May County Herald, United States
By Jack Fichter ERMA — The former control tower from Atlantic City’s Bader Field Airport is now sitting on the tarmac of the Naval Air Station Wildwood ...

Found this picture, and a little more history on Bader Field, on Flickr. Hat tip to Kevin.

Bader Field Airport - Atlantic City, NJ. This small airport may vanish off the face of the earth soon as new casinos are fighting for it's land. I figured better get it while it's here before it's gone forever. This was also the site of a Jet's assumption of a longer runway a few years back and it ended up in the Intracoastal Waterway.
Bader Field was opened in 1910 and was authorized to provide passenger service in 1911. The first known usage of the term "air-port" appeared in a newspaper article in 1919, in reference to Bader Field.
It was the founding location of the Civil Air Patrol in 1941. Scheduled air service was available into the 1980s. However, by the 1990s, activity at Bader Field declined significantly in favor of Atlantic City International Airport, located approximately 9 miles (14 km) northwest. Info from -

The sad fact is that this was all avoidable, had I just heeded the warning signs. ...

Oh, The Humanity! from Ares by Bill Sweetman
There seems to be a tendency for groups that get together near Disneyland to start talking about imaginative ideas, namely airships.

Indianapolis, Ind.—The new airport in Indianapolis opened this week, giving the 8.2 million passengers each year a new 40-gate terminal that can accept international flights.
