Images of the Month Gallery|
On July 5, 2001 the City Council unanimously approved the New Orleans Aviation Board's proposal to rename the New Orleans International Airport in honor of the great Louis Armstrong. A renaming ceremony at the airport on August 2, 2001--two days before the trumpeteer's 100th anniversary--will make the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport a reality. We couldn't resist taking the opportunity to remember Louis Armstrong and the history of the airport in this month's images gallery.
