Because the old Naval Base is on a boat-shaped island, they used to call it "The Unsinkable Aircraft Carrier." I've been there twice; once for an airshow and once for an open house. Beautiful airport and surrounding community.

It seems that the USN use the same design to build airfields along USA,,there's a place here down in Imperial Valley,CA. with an airfield that looks just like the one on the shot.It's named Holtville(KHOL)[?].
