History

In 1929, Mr. Glenn L. Martin, a pioneer aviation designer and constructor, purchased 1,260 acres (5 km²) 12 miles (19 km) east of Baltimore for the purpose of creating an aircraft manufacturing site for the Glenn L. Martin Aircraft Company. One of the first aircraft produced at Martin was the B-10, in 1932, which brought the company of the Collier Trophy. Construction of three runways, Hangars 1-2-3, and the Airport Administration Building took place during 1939-1940. Hangars 4-5-6 and the Strawberry Point Hangar were completed in 1940-1941. The Pan Am China Clippers, PBM flying boats for the U.S. Navy, B-26 Marauder bombers for the U.S. Army Air Force and Martin Mars flying boats for the U.S. Navy were all produced in these facilities. During the post-World War II period, the Martin 202 and 404 commercial transports, as well as various jet-powered aircraft, were also produced. The Martin Company consolidated with the American Marietta Corporation in September 1961 to form the Martin Marietta Corporation. Since 1960, the field has also housed units of the Maryland Air National Guard. The land devoted to airfield use, namely 747 acres (3 km²), was sold on 20 September 1975, to the State of Maryland. In its role of fostering and developing aviation, the State’s purpose in purchasing the Airport was to ensure the retention of a General Aviation facility close to Baltimore.
