Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (IATA: PHX, ICAO: KPHX, FAA LID: PHX) is a public airport located three miles (4.8 km) east of the central business district (CBD) of Phoenix, a city in Maricopa County, Arizona, USA. It is Arizona's main international airport and one of the largest aviation facilities in the American Southwest. Currently, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is the eighth busiest airport in the United States in terms of traffic.

Sky Harbor has been operating under its unique name since prior to 1935, when it was purchased by the City of Phoenix. In the 1950s it was serviced by four airline companies. Today, the airport is the home base for Tempe-based US Airways, and is also the third-largest departure point for Southwest Airlines, the airport's second largest operator. Since beginning service in 1982 Southwest has grown to capture more than 34 percent of the market share. Since 1990, Southwest traffic from PHX has increased more than 352 percent.

The defunct Naval Air Station Dallas (Hensley Field).

Naval Air Station Dallas (also Hensley Field) was a United States Navy Naval Air Station located on Mountain Creek Lake in the Mountain Creek neighborhood of southwest Dallas, Texas (USA). The facility was decommissioned 26 December 1998.

The City of Dallas established Hensley Field in August 1929 as a training field for reserve pilots. The facility was named for Major William N. Hensley, a flying instructor located near Dallas in the 1920s and one of the few onboard the first trans-Atlantic dirigible crossing in 1919.

The City leased the site to the United States Army for US$1.00 a year. The field became the Air Corps Reserve Base in the Eighth Corps Area. At the beginning of World War II, the Army extended their lease to 40 years. In March 1941, the Navy began maintaining operations at the base and on 15 May 1941 established a naval reserve training base on 160 acres (0.7 km²) adjacent to Hensley Field.
