In his honor, Orange County Airport was renamed “John Wayne Airport” in June 1979.  Visitors are greeted by the nine foot heroic bronze by artist Robert Summers.

 

In a western hat, bib shirt, famous “D” brand buckle and right hip holster, Wayne’s signature walk and determined expression allow visitors to fondly remember one of the great motion picture stars of the 20th century.
