Douglas Army Airfield (Now Bisbee-Douglas International)

Douglas Army Airfield started as an advanced bomber training base. After the war, it became Bisbee-Douglas International Airport (the first "international" airport). What you are seeing is the ruins of the Air Corps base. It also has historic civil rights importance (see URL below)

KDUG, Bisbee-Douglas International, was not the first international airport. It was KDGL, Douglas Muni, located on the east side of Douglas. There's a letter on the FBO wall from Eleanor Roosevelt commemorating Douglas Muni on its historical significance.
