In 1942, a stretch of Illinois prairie that had served as a battleground and a railroad depot became the site of a major manufacturing plant, producing Douglas C-54 Skymasters for World War II. Less than twenty years later, that plot of land boasted the biggest and busiest airport in the world. Many of the millions who have since passed through it have likely only regarded it as a place between cities. But for people like Michael Branigan, who has spent years on its tarmac, they know that O'Hare is a city unto itself, with a fascinating history of gangsters and heroes, mayors, presidents and pilots.

From the Author:

Please enjoy a flight into the history of one of the greatest airports in the world. You will learn of gangsters, heroes, mayors, presidents, pilots and UFO's among some great personal reflections from the men who witnessed first hand the never ending growth of this great airport, and the great city of Chicago!

Best regards to all!!!
Michael Branigan

About the Author:

Michael Branigan was born and raised one block away from Chicago's Midway Airport and has been involved with both Midway and O'Hare International Airports in some way since a very young age. In grade school, he started off at the Midway terminals as a self-employed shoeshine boy, later transitioning into an aircraft fueler, customer service agent and ramp service agent before completing technical training in aircraft maintenance, where he graduated from the American Airlines Maintenance Academy in 1992. Branigan has worked in the maintenance field since then at both airports. He also holds a private pilot license and has earned multiple FAA safety awards. Still residing in the Chicagoland area, Michael may be contacted through his website at www.oharehistory.com.
