Pictured on this postcard is a Chesapeake Airways DC-3 plane crossing the Chesapeake Bay on it's way to Baltimore, Washington, or perhaps to Easton or Ocean City. While the airport was originally created as a training field for pilots during WWII, it was later acquired by the City of Salisbury and Wicomico County. By 1947 Chesapeake Airways was transporting passengers and freight to the nearby large cities of D.C. or Baltimore. It's history was short-lived, however, lasting only a few years and was replaced by Allegheny Airlines in the early 1950's.
