Centennial Airport will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2018. Leading up to that date the airport has created an oral history project to tell the airport's history. From the airport:
Help Us Tell the Airport Story
As Centennial Airport looks forward to celebrating its upcoming 50th anniversary in 2018, we think it's also approriate to look back at our history, beginning in 1968.
With that in mind, we've created the Centennial Airport Oral History Project (OHP) to gather and preserve a more complete record of the airport’s history through recorded interviews, the recollections and experiences of those involved, in any capacity, from every generation.
As a close-knit industry, we know this project would not be complete without the inclusion of the voices of those involved.
There is no political agenda. Anyone can participate, whether a former airport executive, tenant, intern, local media, elected official, student or airport user, we’d love to hear from you.
The more breadth and depth the in the project’s participants, the more authentic the collection will be.
The project will commence May 12, 2016, exactly 24 months out from Centennial Airport's 50th anniversary.
Through out the course of the project, a group of dedicated volunteers will collect, verify and assemble interview materials, recordings, documents and photographs.
The information will culminate into a public presentation on May 12, 2018, and then be made available to the public through an online Virtual Archive.
