  • The furthest airport from Stewart International Airport (SWF) is Margaret River Airport (MGV), which is located 11,712 miles (18,848 kilometers) away in Margaret River, Western Australia, Australia.

  • The privatization effectively ended in 2007, when the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey board voted to acquire the remaining 93 years of the lease.
  • By the time the land was finally available, the 1973 oil crisis and the attendant increase in the price of jet fuel had forced airlines to cut back, and some of the airport's original backers began arguing it was no longer economically viable.
  • As the 1980s wore on, veterans of earlier battles over Stewart returned to start new ones.
  • In 1997 the state formally began, through the Empire State Development Corporation, the process of soliciting bids for a 99-year lease on the airport and, potentially, the adjacent undeveloped lands as well, whatever bidders wanted.
  • During World War II many barracks and other buildings, which still stand, were built on the base.
