World War II
During World War II Fano Airfield was built by the United States Army Corps of Engineers as a temporary wartime airfield with a hard earth or pierced steel planking (PSP) runway and parking apron. With few or no permanent structures, tents were used for ground support operations and personnel billeting. It was used as an operational airfield by the USAAF Twelfth and Fifteenth Air Forces in late 1944 and in 1945 until the end of the war.
With the withdrawal of the US forces, the facility was turned over to the local government in late 1945.
