March Field Displays
Flight operations at March Air Reserve Base on Wednesday, March 23.
In 1937, my father, Richard Lockett, was fifteen years old and attended Santa Ana High School. In September 1937 he attended an airshow at March Army Air Field. It featured fighters, bombers, attack planes, and transports. It was a world in which Martin B-10s were old type bombers and Douglas B-18 Bolos were new type bombers. The transport had retractable landing gear and the fighter had fixed wheels. It was notable if an airplane was "all metal".
