|Recurring Event (See all)

Every week for 3 weeks


Learning from the lessons of WWI, the US Army Air Corps mandated better record-keeping for WWII. And we are beneficiaries! Local Tampa historians helped uncover the rich air base history while researching at the Maxwell AFB in June 2016. Course instructors have pulled together the history of Tampa’s prominent air bases – MacDill, Drew, and Hillsborough (Henderson) Airfields as well as other auxiliary stations around the Tampa Bay area. Attendees will learn about the backgrounds to these airfields, plus hear first-hand accounts of life at MacDill during the Cold War and hear about the current process researching and preserving our important military history.
