Miami International Airport in Miami was one of the largest airports in the state of Florida.
In 1959, the airport became notorious for two reasons. Early in the year, Communist sympathiser Alejandro Almeida incited workers to strike, completely shutting down activity in the area. CIA Agent Henry Mitchell enlisted the assitance of Dominic Corleone to break the strike, which he did so by locating Almeida and throwing him from a high building.
Later on, disgraced gangster Hyman Roth returned from Israel after being ejected. He was met by reporters, before being shot by Rocco Lampone, acting under orders from Michael Corleone. Lampone was shot whilst attempting to escape.
