DROP DOWN MENUS FOR PLACES

Please use the drop down menus to the right and follow the links to images and/or other information regarding some of the places that were important to the pilots and passengers using the Davis-Monthan Airfield between 1925 and 1936.

The images, almost by definition, are black and white, and maybe not too legible. In some cases I've been able to provide both period and contemporary images of the places our pilots and passengers called home.

PLACES THEY CAME FROM, FLEW TO, and PLACES THEY LIVED

You will notice when you examine the images of the Register pages that most pilots logged their "Home Station", as well as the places they "Arrived From", and their "Destination".

By query of the database, the pilots who signed the Register came from 317 unique Home Stations, ranging from Aberdeen, MD to Ypsilanti, MI. As you might imagine, the west coast locations of San Diego, CA and Los Angeles, CA and the military bases in California and Texas were cited most as Home Stations.

Also, there were 170 unique "Arrived From" locations. Major east-west travel between San Diego/Los Angeles, Phoenix, AZ and El Paso, TX was the predominant three-way arrival corridor. "El Paso" usually meant the previous stop before Tucson (if not Lordsburg, NM), with most fliers having come from points east before stopping at El Paso enroute to Tucson.

Finally, there were 241 unique "Destinations", ranging from Abilene, TX to Yuma, AZ. The same east-west departure corridor remained, with "Yuma" many times being a refueling stop for further travel into California.

Please check "What's New on the Site" button below and at the bottom of any page to see information on Homebase, Arrived From and Destinations I have recently uploaded. Follow those leads for examples of other types of extended information on this site.

DATABASE

For Microsoft Access geniuses out there, if you look at the analysis I performed for Standard Air Lines, you'll see that it is possible to glean business efficiency variables from the Register database. Could similar inferences be made via a geographic analyses of Home Station, Arrived From or Destination data?
