Anticipation


During World War II a guard house stood just outside the brick entrance gates to Moton Field. The framed structure closest to you is a representation of the guard house. The historic entrance gates are just beyond. How excited the young cadets must have been the first time he passed the guard house and entered Moton Field.

Primary flight training. The anticipation was like nothing I'd ever experienced in my life. All my boyhood dreams of flying...came together....My goal was to get in that place and learn how to fly it.
