Under General Comments above, it says that Indianapolis Metropolitan Airport Operational, Activation Date was 11/1/1961. It might be a minor point, but the airport actually opened for business on July 20, 1961, when the Indiana State Aeronuatics Commission issued its approval for the airport. My Dad, brother, and I built the airport, and I remember the date well. I still have the original copy of the approval certificate.
