Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport , also known as Ryan Field, is a public use airport located four nautical miles (7 km) north of the central business district of Baton Rouge, a city in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, United States.
The airport was originally Harding Army Air Field during World War II and was used by the United States Army Air Forces Technical Service Command as a maintenance and supply base. Its uses also included training pilots to fly Thunderbolt fighters. One of the Thunderbolt pilots trained at Harding was Quentin Aanenson, who survived the war, and in 2007 appeared in Ken Burns' 'The War', a PBS film about World War II. Training was dangerous, 'The War' noting that 'Five members of Aanenson's group of 40 trainees died before they got a chance to go overseas.' * Source: Wikipedia
