O'Hare Airship Port was Astoria's main airship port. Given Astoria's central location in the North American Union, O'Hare was the busiest in the land and notorious for delays since it was at the heart of several airship companies' routes.

In 1995 Colonel Thomas Bushell and Captain Samuel Stanley were scheduled to arrive at O'Hare at 6:00 onboard the Prairie Schooner. However all mooring masts were occupied and their airship joined the queue formed by the half dozen airships that arrived ahead of them. Finally, at 7:20 a mast became available for them and they docked. Unfortunately, the airship that departed that mast was the Six Nations Special, the airship that the two hoped to connect to.[1]
