Many might not know, but the first commercial airport in Los Angeles was The Grand Central Air Terminal located in Glendale that opened in 1922.
Grand Central was the departure site for the nation's first regularly scheduled coast to coast flight, piloted by Charles Lindbergh.
While the airport itself has been closed down since the late 1950s and its one time runway is now a public street, much of the property was purchase by Disney for eventual use of a business complex.
As part of a new agreement with the City of Glendale, Disney will restore the original 1929 air terminal building and control tower including parking historic aircraft outside and allowing public access. Proposals for the plane include locally manufactured DC-3 and P-38.
