Minnesota Airport Renamed For WASP

City Of Faribault, MN Honors Elizabeth “Betty Wall” Strohfus

The Faribault, MN city council Tuesday night voted unanimously to rename its local airport "Faribault Municipal Airport – Liz Wall Strohfus Field" in honor of the city's most famous aviator.

According to a report appearing on Faribault.com, the name change was proposed by the American Association of University Women in Faribault.

Strohfus was one of the pioneering women who helped the war effort during WWII by joining the Women's Air Force Service Pilots (WASPs). She led the fight to get those women recognized as veterans.

AAUS representative Pat Rice told the council prior to the vote that Strohfus "would be the first WASP that had an airport named in their honor."

Faribault Mayor Kevin Voracek said it was a "great way to honor her name in Faribault, and make sure her name lives on forever."

The move was supported by the local aviation community. A dedication ceremony is planned for the spring after new signage including the new name of the airport is ready to be installed.
