The firm, flat fields of Katama, the so-called Great Plain - what use could the energetic men of the 1920’s make of the stretching monotony to fully exploit its, well, its...evenness?
Katama Airfield


Katama Airport general manager Alyssa Fitzpatrick didn't anticipate learning to fly when she started working for Mike Creato, the Island's biplane specialist, 20 years ago.


The Katama Airfield Commission has awarded Zared and Evan Shai — owners of Backyard Taco and Dos Mas eateries — the bid to operate the restaurant space at the airfield.


The World War II-era hangar at Katama Airfield was reduced to scrap on Thursday afternoon — not for the first time, but definitely for the last.

More than half a dozen World War II-era planes paid a visit to Martha’s Vineyard Sunday, landing at the Katama Airfield, and putting on a small show overhead.

The dilapidated Katama Airfield hanger in Edgartown will be officially demolished over the next two weeks, town administrator James Hagerty informed selectmen at a meeting Tuesday.


The fate of the hangar is back in the hands of Edgartown voters when they go to town meeting on April 9, and two days later to the ballot box for a Proposition 2 1/2 override question.
