Boardman Airport (FAA LID: M50), is a public airport 4 miles (6.4 km) southwest of the city of Boardman in Morrow County, in the U.S. state of Oregon.

History[edit]

The airport was built by the United States Army Air Forces about 1942, and was known as Boardman Flight Strip. It was an emergency landing airfield for military aircraft on training flights. It was closed after World War II, and was turned over for local government use by the War Assets Administration (WAA).
