WAVE 3 News Editorial - June 9, 2016: Ali International Airport

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Our hometown global connection – Grand Avenue’s Muhammad Ali – impacted billions of people worldwide in millions of ways.

How fitting it would be to name the Louisville International Airport at Standiford Field the Ali International Airport at Louisville’s Standiford Field.

Ali will always be an international presence, and will always be one of us.

Sharing your own personal Ali story has moved many of us this week.

Ali appreciated his roots and personified the toughness, passion, confidence and conviction emulated by his neighbors in West Louisville. He often gave shout outs to his hometown as he traveled throughout the world.

As others travel throughout the world to and from Louisville, it would be a tribute to him to do it from Ali International Airport.
