In 1942, Jimmy Doolittle, a famous military aviator and legend, traveled to Columbia and called volunteers for a secret military mission.Approximately twenty-five of these B-25 flight crews later flew the famous Doolittle Raid over Tokyo.The City of Columbia eventually constructed a terminal building at the Lexington County Airport and airline operations that had been ongoing at Owens Field shifted to the Lexington County Airport.In the late 1950's, Columbia Mayor Lester Bates and others formed a study group to study how an Airport could be developed and administered to serve Richland County and Lexington County.The site was selected because of elevation, the nature of the terrain and the good soil in the area upon which to construct facilities such as taxiways, aprons and runways.Around 1941, the United States War Department acquired the Airport from Lexington County and expanded it dramatically to serve the effort for World War II.
