Being the entrace gateway to a city as prominent as Gotham, the airport has seen many events, from their regular and normal activities, to some of the most odd situations. For instance, when the US President Ronald Reagan landed on Gotham, he was quickly captured by Batman and taken to safety as it was feared Reagan was the target of a Russian assassin known as the KGBeast.
On another occasion, the Penguin wreaked havoc across the city using killer birds and the airport was also affected. The damage caused by the birds was so big that the control tower was infested by the animals and most of the staff were murdered, which caused the crashing of an incoming airplane in a nearby field.
- The airport was first named after Archie Goodwin on the standardized map of Gotham City that was created for No Man's Land. It appeared unnamed well before that.
