What does it take to have an airport named for you?
How about setting an around-the-world speed record?
In 1938 there was an effort to rename an airport in Texas to honor Howard Hughes (pictured) after he circled the world in 91 hours, besting the previous record by four days.
For a short time, Houston Municipal Airport became known as Howard Hughes Airport.
But the name was changed back when people objected to having an airport named after a living person. Today the airport is known as William P. Hobby Airport.
