Foreign Airfield VisitPast Tours

Phoenix/Sky Harbor, Mesa/Falcon Field (Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum), Williams/Gateway, Apache Junction, Chandler Municipal, Chandler & Gila River Memorial – Sunday 15th March 2020 (Grant Robinson)

Hi all,

It was back to the original plan today and what a full day it was. With two full days scheduled around Phoenix, not a lot was going to be missed. We started off with a few hours at the airport enjoying the early morning sunshine…..

Phoenix/Sky Harbor

A cracking start here with a visiting Alaskan based USAF C-17 (one of my few remaining needs) and two USMC Hercs parked up near the Cutter FBO. Then we went off in search of the F-84 on display within the Arizona ANG part of the airport – three of the four preserved aircraft are easily seen. The F-84 is hidden by buildings but I eventually saw this by walking part of the Salt River Shore path which runs East/West to the South of the Salt River.

Mesa/Falcon Field

I’ve not been here for some time and had great memories of the orange grove field near to the AH-64 Apache flightline and the McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) facility. This field was now levelled and and fenced off and so couldn’t get near that ramp. Being a Sunday, I’m not sure we missed anything anyhow. The museum on the main airfield was open and there had been a fair bit of change since I last visited it in 2011. Marsh Aviation was closed and so were unable to identify all the Trackers in their locked and fenced off compound.

Williams/Gateway

Another place with some great memories as I had a base tour here in 1990 when it was Williams AFB with lot of training T-37s and T-38s – we saw 60 Tweets and 70 Talons!. The screeching noise those Tweets made after engine start up was something else. Anyhow although there is a T-38 on display here to pay homage to the heritage of the site and a lot of the original base buildings remain, Allegiant and general aviation are now putting this place to good use.

A quick drive around here at this very busy general aviation field. Just got what I could without trying too hard as I always find these trips to be more productive if you keep moving.

Gila River Memorial

I had been here two times previously and I’m sure both times, it wasn’t easy to find the entrance to get in. Well this time was even harder due to fencing and rutted and unkept dirt tracks but with some careful driving and a bit of patience we got there in the end. I previously knew this place to be Chandler Memorial, but Wikipedia says by 2007, the Gila River Indian Community had assumed control of the airfield, renaming it Gila River Memorial. The name might have changed but this place is still in a state of total abandonment.
