PLACES THEY CAME FROM, FLEW TO, and PLACES THEY LIVED
You will notice when you examine the images of the Register
pages that most pilots logged their "Home Station",
as well as the places they "Arrived From", and their
By query of the database, the pilots who signed the Register
came from 317 unique Home Stations, ranging from Aberdeen,
MD to Ypsilanti, MI. As you might imagine, the west coast
locations of San Diego and Los Angeles and the military bases
in California and Texas were cited most as Home Stations.
Also, there were 170 unique "Arrived From" locations.
Major east-west travel between San Diego/Los Angeles, Phoenix
and El Paso was the predominant three-way arrival corridor.
"El Paso" usually meant the previous stop before
Tucson (if not Lordsburg, NM), with most fliers having come
from points east before stopping at El Paso enroute to Tucson.
Finally, there were 241 unique "Destinations",
ranging from Abilene, TX to Yuma, AZ. The same east-west departure
corridor remained, with "Yuma" many times being
a refueling stop for further travel into California.
