Glenrock Airport
(For more Norfolk geography tidbits, click here.)

     According to the book Virginia Airports by Vera Rollo & Norman Crabill (published by the Virginia Aviation Museum), Glenrock Airport was operating in June 1930 for rides in a Ford Trimotor.  A commercial license Hampton Roads Times Magazine
      HamptonRoadsTimes.comwas applied for in 3/18/32, approved in 4/11/32 to United Flyers Inc., and approved in 12/6/32 to J. C. Hudgins for commercial operations.  Commercial flight operations had moved to Glenrock Airport in 1932, after the Navy had opposed the expansion of Norfolk's Granby Street Airfield because of its proximity to flying operations at Norfolk Naval Air Station.  (Norfolk Airport website http://www.norfolkairport.com/airportinfo/missionhistory.htm).
