Majors – A Camera Trip Through Majors Army Air Field (PDF)



32 pages
Story of Majors Army Air Field ……. The following pages picture a tour through the environs of this new basic flying school of the Army Air Forces, Gulf Coast Training Center at Greenville, Texas. An attempt has also been made to show a small part of the multiple activities participated in by cadets, enlisted men and officers during the week’s work. Primarily, the field, a theater of operations type, exists for only one purpose – that of training pilots to man the airplanes for Uncle Sam. The training of the cadet is intensive. He comes to Majors Field following pre-flight and primary schooling. He leaves here for advanced work, a commission and wings. The entire program is outlined for the well-being and happiness of the military personnel. From Sunday Saturday night it’s a busy life, as these pictures will prove.
