Fun fact: Orlando International Airport gets it’s airport code (MCO) from U.S. Air Force Col. Michael McCoy, who crashed a B-47 Stratojet on Oct. 9, 1957 out of what was then called Pinecastle Air Force Base. The base was renamed McCoy Air Force Base in the months after the crash. That Air Force Base eventually closed and became Orlando International Airport in the 1970s. Our luggage tags have had MCO on them ever since.
