Bedford , NY Rear Of 25 Kempton Place. Orders to abandon Ellington Field were abruptly halted, however, when the War Department authorized the Texas National Guard to establish an aviation squadron. Hulen, commander of the U. General Hulen assured the citizens of Houston that the new air squadron was not a daredevil outfit. Hulen believed that the reactivation of Ellington Field as a reserve base would provide Houston an airfield and rekindle public interest in military aviation.

With the news of the formation of the Air Squadron, one Houston Chronicle reporter christened the th Observation Squadron "Houston's Own," thus beginning a long relationship between Houston and the National Guard. Though the th Observation Squadron had the excess World War I storage and maintenance facilities at Ellington Field, the squadron did not have a true headquarters building. Major Law requested funds from Texas and the U. National Guard, but unfortunately monies were not available for new buildings.

Law, however, was able convince several local Houston businessmen to donate space in a downtown office building. The use of downtown civilian facilities, however, highlighted the two major inadequacies of Ellington Field: Once on the ground, Mitchell commented that the th Observation Squadron was one of the best units in the nation. Mitchell spoke to enthusiastic crowds at Ellington Field confirming his belief that a strong Air Force was vital to national defense.

Also the possibility of a new municipal airfield endangered the existence of Ellington Field, rumors circulated throughout the Texas National Guard that the War Department wanted to transfer the aviation schools at Kelly and Brooks Fields to Houston. In , Houston was in the process of planning a modern municipal airfield so that Houston would remain a center of commerce and trade in south Texas. Several years later in , Ellington's status was again threatened as local city leaders began to discuss the construction of a municipal airport.

That airport, the present day William P. Hobby Airport , confirmed the squadron's fears that Ellington's aging facilities were obsolete; as a result the Texas National Guard decided to move the th to new facilities at the municipal airport instead. The Texas National Guard and 36th Infantry Division bought most of the airfield's buildings, but the field remained unused; by Ellington was again overtaken by tall prairie grass. That same year, a fire engulfed what was left of the airfield, consuming its remaining structures, except for the concrete foundations and a metal water tower.

For the next 12 years, the U. World War II , with its increasing need for trained pilots, helped to reestablish Ellington Field as an active facility. Albert Thomas , one of Houston's representatives in the United States House of Representatives , pushed for rebuilding Ellington as a pilot training center. Beyond the area's excellent weather for flying, Thomas argued that the Houston area's petroleum refineries, upon which the war effort depended, would need military protection in the region.

Ellington Field was the site for advanced flight training for bomber pilots. Initial plans called for the training of 2, bomber pilots per year at Ellington Field or about ten percent of the total number of pilots trained throughout the United States. Beginning at five-week intervals, classes of cadets entered the week course.

At that level, cadets were taught how to fly the larger multi-engine aircraft. After successful completion of the advanced training course, graduates were transferred to different airfields for more training in actual bombers. Bombardier cadets spent most of their time during the week course in the classroom learning the skills necessary to accurately drop bombs on enemy targets. Hands-on training for the bombardier cadets took place over the Gulf of Mexico.

In ATs or ATs, bombardier students practiced bombing several small islands in Matagorda Bay or small target boats anchored in the bay. The Bombardier School remained at Ellington Field until The USAAF Navigator School consisted of a rigorous week course consisting of instruction in celestial navigation and dead reckoning. To complete the course, cadets were required to have hours in navigating both local and long-range flights.

By , the Navigator School used instructors with combat experience to teach classes. Veteran navigators from every theater of operations lectured cadets at Ellington Field. These lectures were invaluable to cadets because the veteran navigators gave their students insights into navigating under combat conditions and life overseas. By the end of , more than 65 women who served in the Women's Army Corps were also stationed at Ellington.

The WACs worked in noncombat Army jobs in order to free men for combat duty. In , Ellington Airport was one of many airfields selected to be reactivated in an effort to maintain a large military force in the United States after World War II. The program was part of a two-base effort, in which Ellington would provide basic navigation training and its graduates would then be reassigned to Mather AFB , California for advanced training.

Navigation training was enhanced at Ellington when the Air Force installed a microwave navigation system. To help navigators learn celestial positioning, a Houston resident paid for the construction of a planetarium at Ellington. ATC managed the restructure by converting primary observer training into a primary basic course and by providing advanced instruction in the basic course.

Ellington was designated to provide primary observer training, with the establishment of the th Observer Training Wing. In , navigator and observer training were consolidated, which consisted of 42 weeks, including hours of in-flight training.

On 2 December , the Air Force directed the Army Corps of Engineers to proceed with construction of this and the other twenty-three sites. On 1 February the th Aircraft Control and Warning Squadron assumed operational control of the site. The station was designated P This set operated until As a result, in , Ellington was downgraded to a reserve Air Force Base and has served the military in that capacity since. In , the th Troop Carrier Wing, Medium hosted an "air rodeo" to determine which Air Force Reserve cargo squadron was the most accurate in the nation.

Competition took place in the skies above Ellington and on the blacktop tarmac below. Forty aircrews from 14 AFRES air cargo wings from 12 different states participated in the unusual contest. During the event, aircrews dropped pound bundles from C Flying Boxcar aircraft flying high above the base and attempted to hit designated targets on the ground.

Ellington's own th Troop Carrier Wing won the first annual competition. While continuing to operate the C, the th also acquired C Globemaster aircraft in In January , after 14 years of service, the unit's Fs were retired and the unit transitioned to solely Fs. NASA established its facilities at Ellington as its base for astronaut flight proficiency training and specialized aircraft training in the early s because of its proximity to the newly constructed Manned Spacecraft Center.
