The Lusk Herald and The Lusk Standard, August 29, 1922

Through the efforts of the chamber of Commerce it is an assured fact that Lusk is to have one of the first aerial landing fields in the state.

Plans and specifications, together with aerial photographs of the field, as outlined by the war department are now in the possession of William Jack, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce.

The field will be located one and a half miles east of town and is to be 1,800 feet long and 1,000 feet wide.

The placing of the cement marker and runways will necessitate the raising of some funds but the local Chamber of Commerce knows that with the assistance of the good people of Lusk who always have the interests of their town at heart that matter will easily be accomplished.
