History

Boeing Aircraft and Transport (BA&T) was a holding company created in 1928 that included Boeing Aircraft and United Air Lines, itself a holding company for a collection of small airlines that continued to operate under their own names. One of these airlines was Pacific Air Transport (PAT), which Boeing had acquired because of PAT's west coast mail contract in January, 1928.[3] BA&T then sought a suitable site for a new airport for PAT, and found one in Burbank. BA&T had the benefit of surveys that the Aeronautics Department of the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce had conducted starting in 1926 to identify potential airport sites. [4]


It took BA&T a year and the cooperation of the City of Burbank to assemble the desired site from different parcels.[5] The 234-acre site was rife with vines and trees, which had to be removed, and the ground had to be filled and levelled. But these negative features were offset by good drainage, a firm landing surface, steady winds, and good access to ground transport.[6] Construction was completed in just seven months. In an age when few aircraft had brakes and many had a tail skid instead of a wheel, runways were not usually paved; those at Burbank consisted in a five-inch thick mixture of oil and sand. Initially there were no taxi strips, but the designers left room for them. Two of the runways were over 3,600 feet long; a third was 2,900 feet; all were 300 feet wide. These were generous dimensions by the standards of the day, and the site had ample room for later expansion.[7]


Appropriately named United Airport, the new facility was dedicated amid much festivity (including an air show) on Memorial Day Weekend (May 30 - June 1), 1930. Burbank's United Airport and its handsome Spanish revival terminal quickly proved to be a state-of-the-art facility and a showy new competitor to the nearby Grand Central Airport in neighboring Glendale, which was at that time considered to be Los Angeles' main air terminal. The new Burbank facility was actually the largest commercial airport in the Los Angeles region until it was eclipsed in 1946 by the Los Angeles Airport in Westchester when that facility (formerly Mines Field, then Los Angeles Municipal Airport) commenced scheduled commercial operations. is the 150th day of the year (151st in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... is the 152nd day of the year (153rd in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The Burbank facility remained named United Airport until 1934, when it was renamed Union Air Terminal. The name change came the same year that Federal anti-trust actions caused United Aircraft And Transport Corp. to dissolve, which took effect September 26, 1934. The Union Air Terminal moniker stuck for six years, until Lockheed bought the airport in 1940. is the 269th day of the year (270th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Lockheed immediately renamed the property the Lockheed Air Terminal. Commercial air traffic continued even while Lockheed's extensive aircraft-manufacturing facilities at the airport supplied the war effort and developed numerous military and commercial aircraft in the ensuing war years and into the mid-1960s.


In 1966, the airport was dealt a temporary setback when, at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, February 13, a fire broke out in a greasy flue in the kitchen of the terminal building's second-floor restaurant, The Sky Room. The blaze, fanned by gusty winds, spread throughout the terminal building and also consumed the attached control tower. Controllers in the tower at the time of the fire were able to escape to safety by descending on an aerial ladder, and air traffic was diverted to nearby Van Nuys Airport and Los Angeles International Airport for several hours. The fire, contained by firefighters by about 6:30 p.m., caused an estimated $2 million in damages to the terminal, tower, and electronic equipment in the tower. No injuries were reported.

Surprisingly, Lockheed officials declared that the airport would reopen the next day, and it did -- using electronic equipment borrowed from LAX that was set up in a nearby hangar. The hangar also served as the airport's temporary passenger terminal and baggage claim area. The gutted terminal and tower were rebuilt and reopened the following year.

In 1967, Lockheed, aiming at attracting more business, rechristened the facility with the more glamorous-sounding name of Hollywood-Burbank Airport.


It remained Hollywood-Burbank Airport for over a decade, until 1978, when Lockheed sold the facility and the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority took over operations. At that time, the airport acquired its fifth name: Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport (1978-2003).


On November 11, 2003, the airport authority voted to change the airport's name to Bob Hope Airport in honor of comedian Bob Hope, a longtime resident of nearby Toluca Lake, who had died earlier in the year and who had kept his personal airplane at the airfield. The new name was unveiled on December 17, 2003 on the 100th anniversary of the Wright brothers' first flight in 1903, the year that Bob Hope was born. is the 315th day of the year (316th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Numerous attempts to expand safety buffer zones and add increased runway length has drawn a considerable amount of negative feedback from the airport’s closest residents, citing disturbances from increased noise pollution as a serious nuisance. Expansion space around the airport is virtually non-existent due to the encroachment of the surrounding city, leaving the unlikely option of aggressive land acquisition almost entirely out of reach.


BUR is also noted by aircraft spotters as being easily accessible for pleasure viewing of commercial aircraft without the common drawback of disturbing business and other airport functions/facilities. Spotters at Sao Paulo/Guarulhos International Airports control tower. ...


In 2005, the airport celebrated its 75th anniversary. In 2006, it served 5,689,291 travelers on seven major carriers, with more than 70 flights daily.


After much controversy and debate between the Airport Authority, the City of Burbank, the Transportation Security Administration, and Burbank residents, in November 2007 it was decided that a new $8- to $10-million baggage screening facility for Terminal B is legal, considering the anti-growth limitations placed on the airport. The facility will house a $2.5-million Explosive Detection System, used for the automatic detection of explosives within checked luggage. However, the facility is still in the early planning phases, and may be vetoed if the residents of Burbank rally against it.[8]

Expansion

In 2002, Terminal A was renovated and expanded. Plans existed for years to expand the airport with a new passenger terminal north of the existing one, but these plans have been scrapped due to significant opposition from the Burbank City Council and local groups.


A 2004 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) report cited the need for expansion at this airport, but for now this seems impossible due to agreed upon restrictions of the size and number of gates. The current passenger terminal is too close to the runways according to current safety standards but is grandfathered in because of its age. FAA redirects here. ...


Incidents

Bob Hope Airport was initially built for smaller aircraft; as a consequence, the airport has one of the smallest commercially-used runways in the United States. The result is a challenging landing for even the most experienced pilots. Aircraft arriving on Runway 8 must turn off onto the ramp area by the JetBlue gate before completely stopping their landing roll.

  • On March 5, 2000, Southwest Airlines Flight 1455, upon landing on Runway 8 at Burbank following a flight from Las Vegas, overran the runway, injuring 43. The Boeing 737 crashed through a metal blast barrier at the end of the runway, then an airport perimeter fence, and came to rest in the traffic lanes of Hollywood Way, a main north-south thoroughfare. The plane stopped alarmingly close to a Chevron gasoline station located across the street from the runway. The incident resulted in the dismissal of the pilots. The Chevron gasoline station was subsequently closed and removed due to safety concerns.
  • On September 21, 2005, JetBlue Airways Flight 292, took off from Burbank and the front wheel of the aircraft failed to retract and instead jammed at a 90 degree angle perpendicular to the direction the wheels normally face. The aircraft spent several hours in the air before safely making an emergency landing at Los Angeles International Airport, with 140 passengers and 6 crew members aboard. After the aircraft took off, the incident was quickly captured by news helicopters which ran feed that was shown live nationally on cable news. Notably, many passengers on the flight said they watched images of their own aircraft's plight on JetBlue's LiveTV system.
  • On October 13, 2006, a Gulfstream jet overran the runway upon landing. There were no reported injuries amongst the five passengers and two crew members. New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez was on board, on his way to attend the funeral of fellow teammate Cory Lidle. Rodriguez was uninjured, but the accident happened two days after the fatal plane crash of his teammate.

Filming location

The airport has been used as a filming location for projects including:

  • The 1956 film Giant, starring Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and James Dean. Nearby Warner Bros. studio utilized the airport during filming in 1955 to shoot the "Jett Rink Day" parade and celebration sequence, in which Taylor and Hudson arrive by plane at Jett Rink's new airport and discover that their daughter, Luz (played by Carroll Baker), has been named "queen" of the festivities when they see her riding in an open convertible in the parade.
  • The 1988 music video for In My Darkest Hour, a song by Megadeth. Many Southern California metal fans were on hand after hearing an advertising campaign on now-defunct radio station KNAC. The film shoot turned rowdy, with fans spray-painting planes on the tarmac and leaving broken bottles on the runway.
