Blythe Army Airfield

img958 - Copy

Took some searching to discover that this is Blythe Army Airfield in Calif. The B-24 is from the 34th Bomb Group. Despite being advertised as “The world’s healthiest airbase”, Blythe closed with the war’s end. Note: From my experience in the USAF, anytime a base is promoted as being the “healthiest”, the “best kept secret” (etc.), it is usually a place most people would choose not to reside.
