Gary Coffrin sent me this old post card photo of the General Miles of Miles City, Montana, airplane. Apparently it is a Laird Swallow biplane. I do not know the date of, location of, or the names of the gentlemen in the photo.

Gary was asking about when the Miles City Airport ("Frank Wiley Field") first opened. I do not know.

If anyone has any information to share, please do.

I wrote a history column about Frank Wiley and the airport but I can't remember the details. I'll have to dig through files.

Coincidentally I just read your article in the April 17, 2020, edition of the Miles City Star this morning. It says the airport opened in 1928.

Okay. I knew I had it somewhere. It wasn't named Frank Wiley until much later.
