Throwback Thursday! Before ATW was built in its current location, Appleton’s first airport was Whiting Airport, located in Menasha where Wittmann Park currently sits. Whiting Airport opened in 1928 but closed in 1930 due to the closing of the air-mail route. Outagamie County Regional Airport was originally built on Ballard Road in Appleton in the 1940s, but the site was deemed impractical and ATW was built in it’s current location and opened in 1965. This is a Northwest Airways Stinson SB-1 sitting at Whiting Airport in the late 1920s.
Northwest purchased four of these airplanes in 1926 specifically to begin passenger flights, in addition to their existing mail services. Appleton was actually one of the first 10 cities Northwest ever served! This aircraft was likely operating a passenger/mail route between Chicago and Green Bay, with stops in Milwaukee and Appleton. Northwest Airways grew to become Northwest Airlines, which was one of the largest airlines in the Midwest and U.S. until their merger with Delta in 2010. Today Delta serves Appleton with nonstop flights to Minneapolis, Detroit and Atlanta.
