A small airfield operated for four years on the hill east of Juanita Drive near NE 141st Street. North Seattle Airpark provided flight training for would-be fliers through the GI Bill and offered aerial banner service to advertisers from 1948 to 1952. Merritt Smythe (left) and Joe Menard, son of airpark co-founder Al Menard, stand beside one of the planes.

    At one time there was a military only emergency landing strip at the top of Finn Hill where the QFC is now as part of WW II. I’m trying to research this landing strip. Was this and the North Seattle Airpark the same. Dates are not supportive.
