In 1989, the John Wayne Airport Tour Program started for those interested in learning more about the Airport and its history. John Wayne Airport invited The Ninety-Nines, Inc., the International Organization of Women Pilots, founded in 1929, specifically the Orange County Chapter, to be part of their inaugural tour guide program. This was quite a privilege and long-time member and pilot Eleanor Todd was among the first to jump in and help. In the long run, she created a great partnership with the Airport.
