Lake Havasu City in Mohave County, Arizona — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Lake Havasu Auxiliary Field #6
Site #6, now officially known as Lake Havasu Auxiliary Field #6, was acquired by the Army Air Force during World War II as an emergency landing field for the Kingman Army Air Field's Yucca Aerial Gunnery Range. The emergency field was established in 1943 and consisted of two runways. In 1944 the site was improved for use as a rest and convalescent camp for the Kingman Army Air Field. United States servicemen enjoyed swimming, fishing, skeet shooting, motor boating, and hiking activities while relaxing on the banks of Lake Havasu.
