About O’Hare

O’Hare began as a manufacturing plant for Douglas C-54 Skymasters during World War II. The site was known as Orchard Place, previously a small German-American farming community. Less known is the fact that it was the location of the Army Air Force’s 803rd Specialized Depot, a unit charged with storing many captured enemy aircraft. Douglas Company’s contract ended with the war’s conclusion. Douglas considered building airliners at Orchard, but chose to concentrate civil production at its headquarters in Santa Monica, California. With the departure of Douglas, the complex took the name Orchard Field Airport, and was assigned the IATA code ORD

We welcome all pilots to attend our event, but send express invites to our cherished partners:

I gotta find a route lol

Odd, that you didn’t pick Midway, but O’hare also works, I guess lol. I’ll see what route will make sense for me right now :)

Look fun! I will definitely join!

Do we have to reserve a spot???

Wow! This looks like such a cool flyout! Let’s fill O Hare with Southwest! But unfortunately I can’t join.

There are no reservations as this is a Fly-In Event! Just choose a route that will let you arrive within the planned window, and we’ll see you there!


Hello! I’m the one who planed this event. Some of reasons I chose O’Hare over Midway is because one of our codeshares, LOT, does a long haul into here. It’s also bigger lol. I hope this cleared this up!

I ll join. Maybe from Orlando.

I’ll take this please

We’re excited to see your attendance! There is no need to reserve a gate! Just pick a flight and we’ll see you there! Don’t forget that the event time is the start of the arrival window so don’t forget to depart with enough time to arrive within the window.

We can’t wait to see everyone there! We are also still looking for ATC.

Quick question could I use my call sign for the flight SWA564VA

Any SWVA Pilot should use their callsign.

Ok just wanted to make sure
