San Diego’s North Island is one of the most significant venues of aviation in the world. Starting in 1911, it was the home to one of the nation’s first aviation schools, founded by Glenn Curtiss, who pioneered seaplane flight. He trained the nucleus of America’s future air forces there, including Lt. Theodore Ellyson, the first naval aviator. When the United States entered World War I, the government took over the island with plans to build a training center for the nation’s armed forces. The new army base was named Rockwell Field, and the navy portion was named Naval Air Station San Diego. By 1937, the army had moved out, and the navy became the sole tenant. Today NAS North Island is part of the largest aerospace-industrial complex in the navy and is headquarters for the Naval Air Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet.

An excellent history book of North Island. I was stationed there in 1966-1968 in the Navy.
Lived on Coronado Island. I loved that area and maybe should have moved back after leaving
the Navy.
This book tell how North Island and Coronado Island were separate, but enlarged over the years.
and became one Island. Good pictures.

I was expecting a book about the base at NAS North Island....In my view the book is primarily a photo history of the aircraft stationed at NAS North Island rather than history of the base itself...I returned my copy....

An excellent book with high quality photos of the early years at North Island. Although the emphasis is on aircraft there are photos of people, buildings and hangars. It is a fine addition to the 1967 book Jackrabbits to Jets.
