Exciting News!  Having previously written about Freeman Field and all of the controversies and history seen on the base, I’m currently working on a freelance piece about this airfield, particularly with reference to all of the Axis material and aircraft research that occurred while it was open.  It’s not due out until later in the year, but it will be fun writing about it!

In case you’ve never heard of this, Freeman Field was used during World War II as a training field for all sorts of pilots and cadets flying for the U.S.  It was also known as the location of the Freeman Field Mutiny and the location where Axis aircraft of all types were flown to, studied, and evaluated.

There’s quite a bit of work being done on recovering information and artifacts about this unique World War II airfield.  I’ve also been in touch with some of the team members currently working on finding more information about the field.  You can find more information about them on their Facebook page located here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Freeman-Field-Recovery-Team/100776559984890.

For now, I’ll leave you with the following links and notes, plus the sites mentioned above.  Stay tuned for more information as I put my piece together.

Talk to you soon!
