History

The airfield was reopened by the United States Army Air Corps Air Corps as a training base during World War II. In the 1920s the Transcontinental Air Transport airline built an airfield in Fort Sumner as part of its coast-to-coast air passenger network, but the site was abandoned when the airline's ambitious plans collapsed in the Great Depression. Billy the Kid is buried in the old military cemetery in Fort Sumner as is Lucien Maxwell. After the war, the base became the Fort Sumner Municipal Airport, and was chosen as a launch site for NASA's high altitude balloon program. Fort Sumner is the spring and fall home of the Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility.

Fort Sumner was a military fort charged with the internment of nearby Navajo people and Mescalero Apache populations from 1863 to 1868.
