Well the United training facility was built in the sixties so that's what I'm guessing it's somewhere in the early sixties

1960. The airport was named after Mayor Stapleton who was a member of the KKK. Sad time in history.

1960. That was even before I-70. I think that road under the runway was known as state route #72 then.

1960. Its on the picture if you click on it. Hard to imagine a 40 mph speed limit.
