The historic aviation facility which was the first to bear the title 'airport' has been put back on the market-in what could be a 90% off sale.

Bader Field in Atlantic City saw every U.S President from Theodore Roosevelt to Gerald Ford touch down on its grounds and was where the Civic Air Patrol was founded in 1941. A local journalist first used the word 'airport' when describing Bader field in a 1919 article and it was closed in 2006 after almost 100 years of aviation use after the city's fortunes crashed.

The airport was originally put up for sale in 2008 for $1 billion but will now be listed for sale at just $150 million.
