Airport Operations

1618 CLUI photo

The operations building, at the foot of the original control tower, is the administrative headquarters for what is left of the airfield today, an area that includes most of the remaining structures north of the flightline, as well as the hangars, runways, and Southbase. The airport is now owned and operated by Tooele County, Utah, and a staff of four or so county employees work out of this building. Prior to being taken over by the county in the late 1990s, the airbase was owned by the city of Wendover, Utah, and this building was the home of the aviation services business with the poetic, mythological, name of Icarus Aviation, which effectively ran the airport functions of the base for over ten years. The airport operations building is open to the public every day from 8 to 6, and inside is an exhibit about the WWII airfield, with historic photographs and artifacts. This is a good place to ask questions about the historic airfield.
