Echeverria WWII Airfield

Echeverria Field started out as a contract glider pilot school for the USAAF during WWII and later went on to being a primary flight training school (powered). After the war it went on to a number of uses including being a prison, housing migrant workers and was the Wickenburg airport until a new field was built closer to town. AAIR returned to photograph the remaining structures. When we first visited five years ago (without a camera) one of the original barrack buildings was still standing, but it has since been torn down. Just the main hangar and two outlying buildings remain today.
