Remembering Piper Airport

PRINCETON — It has been many years since the Piper Airport ceased to be, yet no lasting memorial has been created to an important part of Bureau County development. Until now.

Jeff Monroe of West Chester, Ohio, formerly of Princeton, created a YouTube video called “Piper Airport, Princeton, IL - A History,” using what he had available. The public is invited to view the video and submit to him, through the YouTube Private Message system that is available or at jmonroe@fuse.net, any relevant photos and descriptions of people and aircraft that are part of the story and he will add to the video so that memories are not lost.
