Swan Island was the site of Portland’s first airport, Swan Island Airport, dedicated by Charles Lindbergh in 1927[4] and operating until the early 1940s when the island was converted to naval shipbuilding use for World War II as one of the Kaiser Shipyards.[5] Swan Island is now an industrial area.
