Tucson

Tucson (110.880W 32.176N) was the site of Davis-Monthan Air Base, which was originally Tucson's municipal airport. It was dedicated as such in 1927 by Charles Lindbergh during a cross-country tour. For a time, it was the largest municipal airport in the country. The air base is named after two WWI aviators killed in air accidents during the 20's. It became a military base in 1925 and was greatly expanded in 1940, becoming an operational training base for heavy bombers.

At the time war broke out, Davis-Monthan was the headquarters of 4 Bomber Command and 41 Medium Bomber Group.
