In January 1957, Mrs. Hunter Jones hitched a ride behind a ski plane that was visiting Chesterfield County's Parnell Field, which opened in March 1946 as the first postwar airport in the Richmond area. Located on Bells Road, Parnell Field had two dirt runways, and at its peak, it was home to as many as 30 light aircraft. It closed in 1972.
