Un-Used Eye-irforce Bases
Found this strange land shape here
"A remarkable composite picture, in which David Brooks has superimposed close-up views
of the numerous former auxiliary airfields over the 1996 USGS aerial photo,
showing their location relative to Luke AAF/AFB."
A February 14, 1949 aerial view (from the Maricopa County Flood Control District)
depicted Beardsley as having 4 paved runways.
Beardsley Auxiliary Army Airfield #2, Glendale, AZ
The earliest photo which has been located of the Beardsley airfield
was a June 17, 1943 aerial view looking east from the 1945 AAF Airport Directory.
