Hold the command-key (the one with the Apple logo), click on the Airport icon and drag it off the menubar. When you release the mousebutton, the icon will disappear with a little "woosh"-effect.

I always thought it was a puff of smoke.

There is also the option of opening network in the system preferences, selecting airport form the pull down menu and unchecking show airport in the menubar box. Most icons can be removed from there preference pane. I only bring it up because its good to now your way around your system.
