Eugene Airport also known as Mahlon Sweet Field, is located 7 miles northwest of Eugene, Oregon. Owned and operated by the City of Eugene, it is the fifth-largest airport in the Pacific Northwest, providing commercial air service to a six-county region in mid-Oregon. The airport was named for Mahlon Sweet (1886 - 1947), a Eugene automobile dealer who was a strong supporter of aviation and pushed to get the now-defunct Eugene Air Park built in 1919, followed by the current airfield in 1943. There are two runways, 8,009 foot and 6000 foot. The Google picture shows only the original longer runway.
