However, after the Attack on Pearl Harbor , the Army changed its plans and instead of being an operational base, "Tarrant Field" as the facility was called, became a heavy-bomber training school. [5] The first unit assigned to the base was the Army Air Forces Training Command Combat Crew School on 1 July 1942. [4] At the same time, the Consolidated plant began assembly of B-24D Liberator aircraft in May, [6] with the first aircraft being assigned to the school in August. On 29 July, the base was again renamed, this time as Fort Worth Army Air Field . [4]

The Patuxent River Naval Air Museum (PRNAM) is a member-supported, privately-funded museum preserving the history and heritage of Naval Aviation and associated technology.

Our mission is to "Preserve, Educate, Inspire" by presenting the continuing story of Naval Aviation with a focus on Research, Development, Testing, and Evaluation (RDT&E) at Naval Air Station Patuxent River. Our Vision is to be a highly valued community resource providing both educational and tourism benefits to the Southern Maryland area for generations.

Located just outside Gate 1 of Naval Air Station Patuxent River, the PRNAM is operated by the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum Association, Inc., a 501(C)3 non-profit charitable organization. First opened in 1978, the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum now spans three buildings and also includes a Flight Line consisting of one-of-a-kind aircraft and aircraft configurations unique to the Naval Test Center.

850 mb Temperature Contour
This a contour plot of temperature in Celsius at the 850 mb level. The interval is 5 degrees. The temperature field shows where warm and cold air are located. Temperatures at this level do not show the diurnal temperature changes from morning low to afternoon high we see at the earth's surface. The 850 temperature is also a decent indicator of the type of precipitation. Since most precipitation forms at 5000 feet or above, a temperature of freezing (0 Celsius) or below would indicate snow whereas a temperature above freezing would indicate rain.

The Korean War brought considerable activity as El Toro became the jumping off point for units headed for combat. The 1st MAW moved to the Pacific. In 1951, the Marines established an MCAF for helicopters at the former NAS Santa Ana. In 1970, the helicopter base was redesignated as MCAS Tustin. In 1958, Navy and Marine aviation went through a major reorganization. With the closing of MCAS Miami, the Third Marine Air Wing moved to El Toro where the wing remained for the next 40 years. The Vietnam War brought a growth of activity as El Toro once again became the debarkation point for Southeast Asia. Thousands of Marines from Camp Pendleton and El Toro departed for Vietnam on military and commercial transports.
