The Air Service In Alabama During The Great War

Presented by OLLI of Greater Birmingham at Online/Virtual Space

Feb 04 2021
The Air Service In Alabama During The Great War

The history of Alabama’s Air Service and the development of Maxwell Air Force Base.

OLLI at UA presents The Air Service in Alabama During the Great War with Robert Kane.  In 1917 the UA Air Service established a flight training school at an airfield located southeast of Montgomery near present-day Pike Road.  A year later, they added an aircraft and engine repair depot on the former site of the Wright Brothers civilian flight school.  While the training field closed after the war and reopened during World War II, it is virtually gone, covered in private housing.
