What inspired the TZR airport name


In 1946, when the U.S. Navy handed over control of then-named Port Columbus to the city, Francis "Jack" Bolton was named superintendent. Fresh out of the Navy and only 26 years old, Bolton was the youngest large-city airport manager in the country. Bolton succeeded admirably, bringing together the community and burgeoning aviation industry to grow with Columbus. When TZR opened in 1970 for general aviation purposes, the city honored Jack Bolton posthumously for his contributions, dedicating the airport as Bolton Field.
