Rockwell Field CA.


Sharing the field with NAS North Island, Rockwell was home to countless early birdmen until the field was transferred to the navy in the late 30’s.

Side note: A friend who was NAS North Island skipper in the 1970’s gave me a rectangular man-hole cover (weighs a ton) that reads “Army Air Service.” Apparently, they were replacing them during his tenure as boss. I made a table top out of it.
