Hickam Field?[edit]

Who in the world really believes Hickam AFB became Hickam Field when the joint base was established? A little authority, please. --Lineagegeek (talk) 01:07, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

Lineagegeek, I can take a picture of the front gate and post it right here showing that it's called Hickam Air Field - it's been Hickam Air Field ever since the merger with Pearl Harbor. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 132.3.9.78 (talk) 23:38, 23 September 2016 (UTC)

This is something we have looked at Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor. Before 1947, there were no air force bases simply because there was no Air Force. Rather, the United States Army Air Forces (yes, plural) bases were called fields. After the USAF was created in 1947, its fields became air force bases, with Hickam Field becoming Hickam Air Force Base in 1948. Historically, Hickam Field was the primary base for bombers on Oahu. For pursuit aircraft (fighters), it was Wheeler Field. Other fields were Haleiwa Field and Bellows Field. All of the official documents from that time say Hickam Field. A good historical source is Arakaki, Leatrice R. and Kuborn, John R., 7 December 1941: The Air Force Story, Pacific Air Forces, Office of History, Hickam Air Force Base, Hawaii, 1991. Leatrice R. Arakaki was the historian of the 15th Air Base Wing, and John Kuborn was the deputy command historian at Headquarters, Pacific Air Forces. Until recently, Hickam Air Force Base and Pearl Harbor Naval Station were separate facilities. On October 1, 2010, they were combined into Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Neither exists any longer as separate entities. For the joint base's history, see http://www.cnic.navy.mil/regions/cnrh/installations/jb_pearl_harbor_hickam/about/history.html. My name is Raymond Panko. I am a docent at the museum, and I do research for the blog.
