About Kodiak Airport
The prize money of one thousand dollars was put into a trust, because Benny was only 13. When he graduated high school, he used the prize money for tuition in aviation mechanic’s school. He worked at what was then the Kodiak State Airport. In 2013, the airport was named after him. On the 6th of June 1912 much of Alaska experienced a violent earthquake. The center was in Kodiak at Mount Novarupta. A few hours later, the mountain erupted. Ash fell until the 9th, three whole days. Most buildings in Kodiak were destroyed from the weight of the ash.
The people that did not evacuate had to be rescued. The air was not fit for breathing, ash laid out over one foot deep. The beauty of Kodiak is in its nature. You will be spellbound by the amount of wildlife. Kingfisher Aviation in Kodiak offers up close and personal tours into Brown bear country.
