Monument to mark Airport Beach

By Staff | Jun 18, 2010

KAANAPALI — A Kaanapali Airport Monument dedication will be held Monday, June 21, from 2 to 4 p.m. near the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort and Kahekili Beach Park.

    “This monument will serve to enlighten passers-by as to why the name Airport Beach,” noted Bob Morrison, a former Royal Hawaiian Air Service pilot who spearheaded the project.

    The event will feature awards and limited cake and punch. Visitors should bring their own food and drinks (alcohol is prohibited).

    “Royal Hawaiian Air Service provided quality air service into/from Kaanapali Airport for 17 years, and carried over 2 million passengers systemwide without injuring one person in those eight-passenger twin-Cessnas,” Morrison wrote.

    Everyone is invited — young and old — to hear stories of the old airport that so many patronized and loved. For information, call Morrison at (808) 284-4214.
