Aloe AAF / Victoria County Airport (revised 2/25/13) - Aloe Aux AAF #10 (revised 12/1/13)

Matagorda Island AFB (revised 4/26/12) - Matagorda Peninsula AAF / Matagorda Club Airfield / Pierce Field (revised 12/1/13)

Matagorda Peninsula Airport (revised 7/12/14)Nursery Field / Foster Aux AAF #4 (revised 12/1/13) - Worsham Field (revised 7/6/10)



Worsham Field / Hunt Dusting Service Field (90R), Taft, TX

27.98 North / 97.38 West (Northeast of Corpus Christi, TX)

Worsham Airport, as depicted on a 3/5/50 aerial view.



This small general aviation airport was evidently established at some point between 1943-45,

as it was not yet depicted at all on the July 1943 Corpus Christi Sectional Chart (courtesy of David Brooks).

The earliest depiction of Worsham Field which has been located

was on the 1945 Edwards Plateau World Aeronautical Chart (according to David Brooks).



Michael Morgan recalled “the old Worsham Field in Taft... I lived in Taft 1946-54 & it was quite active.

Aeronca sales, flight training, and a sizable crop dusting operation.”



The earliest photo which has been located of Worsham Airport was a 3/5/50 aerial view.

It depicted the field as having 3 unpaved runways, with a hangar on the north side.

No aircraft were visible on the field.



The 1951 USGS topo map depicted Worsham Airport as having 3 runways, with a hangar on the north side.



A 1961 aerial view depicted Worsham Airport in an unchanged manner, but with one single-engine aircraft visible near the hangar.



The Aerodromes table on the 1964 Corpus Christi Sectional Chart described Worsham as having 3 unpaved runways,

with the longest being a 2,200' turf strip.



The 1966 TX Airport Directory (courtesy of David Brooks)

depicted Worsham Field as having 3 turf runways,

with the longest being the 2,200' Runway 8/26.

A hangar with attached office was depicted on the north side of the field.

The field was said to offer minor repairs & fuel.

The operator was listed as the Worsham Dusting Service,

and the manager was listed as D.E. Montgomery.



The 1973 Brownsville Sectional Chart (courtesy of David Brooks)

depicted Worsham Field as having a 2,200' unpaved runway.



At some point between 1973-75 the field was evidently renamed “Hunt”,

as that is hot it was depicted on the 1975 Brownsville Sectional Chart (courtesy of David Brooks).

It depicted Hunt as having a 2,200' unpaved runway.



The 1977 TX Airport Directory (courtesy of David Brooks)

depicted the “Hunt Dusting” Airfield as having 3 turf runways,

with the longest being the 2,500' Runway 13/31.

A single building was depicted on the north side of the field.

The manager was listed as J.M. Hunt.



The 1984 TX Airport Directory (courtesy of David Brooks)

depicted the Hunt Dusting Service Airfield as having 2 runways:

2,260' Runway 13/31 & 2,000' 8/26.

The former Runway 17/35 had apparently been abandoned at some point between 1977-84.

Three buildings were depicted on the north side of the field.

The field was prominently labeled as “Land at own risk.”

The manager was listed as J.M. Hunt.



The last aeronautical chart depiction which has been located of Hunt Field

was on the 1985 Brownsville Sectional Chart (courtesy of David Brooks).

It depicted Hunt as having a 2,200' unpaved runway.



Hunt Field may have been closed (for reasons unknown) at some point between 1985-86.

Michael Morgan recalled, “I went back once, in 1986,

and the field was abandoned with only the hangar still standing.”



The 1989 USGS topo map still depicted “Worsham Airfield” as having 3 unpaved runways,

with the hangar on the north side of the field.



As of the 1995 USGS aerial photo,

the area of the airport's 3 former runways remained clear,

and the hangar on the north side of the field remained standing as well.



A 3/31/08 aerial view showed that the Worsham hangar had been removed at some point between 1995-2008,

and houses had been built on the northeast corner.

The majority of the airfield property remained intact, though.



The site of Worsham Field is located southeast of the intersection of Rincon Road & Tutt Avenue.

Aloe Army Airfield / Victoria County Airport, Aloe, TX

28.78 North / 97.09 West (Southwest of Victoria, TX)

A 1942 US Army aerial photo of Aloe AAF (apparently taken while the airfield was still under construction).



Aloe Army Air Field, an advanced single-engine training field for fighter pilots,

was opened in 1943 on a 1,909-acre tract 5 miles southwest of Victoria.



Aloe became the new home of the Lake Charles Army Flying School,

which relocated from Lake Charles, LA.

Using the North American AT-6 Texan & Curtis P-40,

cadets were schooled in flying & in ground & aerial gunnery.



A 1943 US Army Facility Layout of Aloe AAF depicted the field as having 4 concrete runways & a large concrete apron on the east side.

 

Aloe AAF, as depicted on the 1943 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Chris Kennedy).



During WW2, Aloe had a total of 4 satellite fields:

Aloe Aux #7 (7.6 miles northwest of Victoria), of which no trace remains,

Aloe Aux #8 (4.2 miles south of Goliad), of which no trace remains,

Aloe Aux #9 (15 miles southwest of Victoria), of which no trace remains,

and Aloe Aux #10 (7.2 miles ENE of Goliad).



A 10/25/43 aerial view looking north at Aloe Army Airfield from the 1945 AAF Airfield Directory (courtesy of Scott Murdock).



The July 1945 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Chris Kennedy)

depicted Aloe AAF as having its own control tower.

 

Soon after V-J Day the government made plans to reassign the field

as a subpost of Foster Army Air Field (a larger installation northeast of Victoria),

but both Aloe & Foster were closed in 1945.

Aloe AAF was declared surplus by the War Department in 1946

& turned over to the War Assets Administration for disposal.



Aloe Field, with its 304 buildings, was transferred to Victoria County in 1948,

after which the site became Victoria County Airport.



The 1949 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Chris Kennedy) described Victoria County Airport

as having a 5,600' hard-surface runway.



The Victoria County Airport was depicted in the 1960 Jeppesen Airway Manual (courtesy of Chris Kennedy)

as having four 5,000' paved runways, as well as a very large ramp with numerous buildings on the east side of the field.



In 1960 the County Airport was moved to Foster Field, and Aloe Field was closed.

Victoria County returned the field back to the Federal Government in 1961.

The base was declared surplus by the General Services Administration in 1962 & offered for sale.

The land was broken into parcels & sold in April 1963.



A portion of the former airfield was purchased in 1963 by a local businessman,

who leased a runway on a year-to-year basis to the “Rod Benders”, a hot rod club,

to use the runway for drag races.

The club could not make any permanent improvements at the property.

They named the facility “Six Flags Drag Way”.



Aloe Field was still depicted on the 1964 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Bill Suffa),

although it was labeled "closed".

The Aerodromes table on the chart described Aloe as having a total of 4 runways,

with the longest being a 5,655' concrete runway.



An undated (circa 1960s?) photo of a 1960s-era Mustang competing in a drag race on an Aloe runway.

Note the hangar in the background at left, and a Piper or Beechcraft on the right.



In 1968 G.A. Kupfernagel purchased the property which had been used for drag racing,

and named it “Six Flags Raceway Park”.

In 1973 Kupfernagel sold the land & equipment.

The new owner continued to operate races at the airfield until the end of 1975,

when he sold the land to a developer.



The west side of the airfield (including the runways) has become an industrial park.

The east side has become a housing development.



The remaining runways of the former Aloe airfield were not depicted at all on the 1987 USGS topo map,

just several buildings on the east side of the field.



A 1990 photo by John Voss of hangars & the ramp of the former Aloe AAF.

 

A 1994 photo by Scott Murdock of pavement of a former runway at Aloe AAF.

 

As seen in the 1995 USGS aerial photo,

the airfield consisted of 4 concrete runways (the largest is 5,800' long), taxiways & a large ramp,

the vast majority of which still existed.

Industrial buildings had been built on the southern end of the north/south runway,

and a railroad yard had been built on the southern end of the ramp.



According to Mike Erwin (who visited the site in 1997),

remnants of the control tower were still visible.

 

Aloe was not depicted at all (even as an abandoned airfield) on either recent aeronautical charts,

which is unusual for such a large airfield.



A 2005 aerial view showed that Route 463 had been constructed at some point between 1995-2003

right through the center of the former airfield.

But large portions of 4 runways & the extensive ramp still remained intact.

 

Navy flight instructor Michael Strobach reported in 2003,

"I, too, was surprised that the field was not depicted on the sectional.

It's been industrialized, but the field is clearly visible even from far away.

One difference I noticed between [the above] 1995 picture & today

is that a north/south road has been constructed that runs right through the middle of the field."

 

A 2003 photo by Scott Murdock, who observed, "A highway now slices across the runways, and I could see part of a runway on the far side of the highway."

Scott reported that the site of Aloe AAF "looked much as it did on my first visit in 1994."

A 12/31/08 aerial view showed that the vast majority of the Aloe airfield still remained intact,

even after being bisected by a highway.



A 6/28/09 aerial view looking south showed the extensive remains of the Aloe airfield.



The site of Aloe AAF is located on Route 59, near Route 175.

Aloe Auxiliary Army Airfield #10, Fannin, TX

28.7 North / 97.28 West (West of Victoria, TX)

A 10/25/43 aerial view looking north at Aloe Army Airfield Auxiliary #10 from the 1945 AAF Airfield Directory (courtesy of Scott Murdock).



This field was used during WW2 as one of 4 satellite fields for Aloe AAF (12.4 miles east-northeast),

which was a center for advanced flight training in single engine aircraft.

Aloe Aux #10 was evidently built at some point in 1943,

as it was not depicted at all on the 1943 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Chris Kennedy),

but it was depicted on a 1943 AAF map of Foster Field & surrounding airfields.



The 1945 AAF Airfield Directory (courtesy of Scott Murdock) described Aloe Army Auxiliary Airfield #10

as a 943 acre “quadrangular” property having 3 concrete 4,000' runways.

The field was said to not have any hangars,

to be owned by the U.S. Government, and operated by the Army Air Forces.



The earliest aeronautical chart depiction which has been located of Aloe Aux #10

was on the July 1945 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Chris Kennedy).

It depicted “#10” as an auxiliary airfield.



The last aeronautical chart depiction which has been located of this airfield as active

was on the 1949 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Chris Kennedy).

But it was somewhat confusingly labeled "Aloe AF",

and described as having a 4,000' hard-surface runway.



The earliest photo which has been located of Aloe Aux #10 was a 10/1/59 USGS aerial view.

It depicted Aloe Aux #10 as having 3 paved runways, taxiways, and a paved ramp on the northeast side.



Aloe Aux #10 was abandoned at some point between 1949-62, as it was labeled "Foster Field (Aban'd)" on the 1962 USGS topo map.

That name may have been erroneous, as this airfield was an auxiliary of Aloe AAF, not Foster AAF.



It was labeled "Aband arpt" on the 1964 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Bill Suffa).



It was labeled "Foster Air Force Auxiliary #2" on the 1978 USGS topo map,

but according to other sources, that field was located elsewhere (18 miles NNW of Victoria).



The 1987 USGS topo map labeled the field as “Foster Field (Aban'd)”,

and depicted it as having 3 paved runways, taxiways, and a paved ramp on the northeast side.



A 1994 photo by Scott Murdock of the gate leading to Aloe Aux #10.

As of 1994, the runways were being reused for open storage of industrial equipment.



The 1995 USGS aerial photo showed the Aloe Aux #10 airfield to remain intact,

with three 4,000' paved runways, taxiways & a ramp.

A single building was on the ramp, presumably of post-war (civilian) construction.



Aloe Aux #10 was still depicted as an abandoned airfield on 2003 aeronautical charts.



A 12/31/08 aerial view depicted Aloe Aux #10 to remain unchanged as seen in 1995.



Aloe Aux #10 is located on the north side of Route 59, 7 miles east-northeast of Goliad, TX.

Nursery Field / Foster Auxiliary Army Airfield #4, Thomaston, TX

28.97 North / 97.06 West (North of Victoria, TX)

A 10/25/43 aerial view looking north at “Foster Field Auxiliary #4 (Nursery Field)” from the 1945 AAF Airfield Directory (courtesy of Scott Murdock).



This field was used during WW2 as one of 4 satellite fields for Foster AAF (13 miles southeast),

which was a center for advanced flight training in single engine aircraft.

The date of construction of Nursery Aux AAF has not been determined.

It was evidently built at some point in 1943,

as it was not depicted at all on the 1943 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Chris Kennedy),

but it was depicted on a 1943 AAF map of Foster Field & surrounding airfields.



The military property at Nursery consisted of a total of 472 acres.



The earliest aeronautical chart depiction which has been located of Foster Auxiliary Airfield #4

was on the July 1945 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Chris Kennedy).

It depicted “#4” as an auxiliary airfield, around which was a circular “Danger Area”.

What was that for? Was this field also used as a target for gunnery or bombing?



The Nursery airfield was labeled as "Foster #4" on the 1949 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Chris Kennedy),

and described as having a 5,500' hard-surface runway.



It may have been abandoned at some point between 1949-52,

as Scott Murdock said that Nursery Airfield was brought back into service

as Foster AF Auxiliary Field #1 (2129) from about 1952-58.



The Nursery airfield was apparently abandoned again at some point between 1958-63,

as it was labeled "Airfield (Abandoned)" on the 1963 USGS topo map.



The Nursery airfield was not depicted at all (not even as an abandoned airfield)

on the 1964 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Bill Suffa).

 

A 1994 photo by Scott Murdock of the gate which leads to the former Nursery Field.

Note the sign which still says "Airport Pasture".



As of 1994, the property was being used as a cattle feedlot.

Giving a clue to its former life, the access gate is still marked "Airport Pasture."



As of the 1995 USGS aerial photo, the airfield consisted of 3 runways (the largest is 5,400'), taxiways & a ramp.

The 2 diagonal runways were barely visible, and may have been plowed over.

The north/south runway was in much better condition,

and may have remained in use at a later date than the other two.



Nursery AAF was depicted as an abandoned airfield on recent Sectional aeronautical charts,

and was depicted (but labeled simply "Airfield (Abandoned)" on recent USGS topo maps.



A 12/31/08 aerial view showed that the northwest/southeast runway had been completely removed, and replaced by several streets & houses.

Traces of the southwest/northeast runway were only barely recognizable.



The Nursery Airfield is located on Route 87, near Route 447, 12.5 miles north-northwest of Victoria, TX.

Matagorda Island AFB, Matagorda Island, TX

28.33 North / 96.46 West (Northeast of Corpus Christi, TX)

Matagorda Island AFB, as depicted on the 1952 USGS topo map.



This abandoned airfield is located on a narrow island on the Gulf of Mexico.

It was built in 1943 as an Army Airfield,

to support the surrounding 50,825 acre Matagorda Island Bombing Range,

which conducted air-to-air & air-to-ground gunnery training.

 

The airfield was labeled as "Matagorda Island Gunnery Range"

on the 1943 San Antonio Sectional Chart (according to Chris Kennedy).

The airfield was reactivated as an Air Force Base for the Strategic Air Command in 1949.



The 1949 San Antonio Sectional Chart depicted the field as "Matagorda Island (Army)" (according to Chris Kennedy),

and described the field as having a 4,000' hard-surface runway.



The 1952 USGS topo map depicted Matagorda Island AFB as having 6 paved runways, with numerous taxiways,

a large ramp, and a large number of streets & buildings.



The only photo which has been located which showed Matagorda Island AFB while in use is a circa 1950s/60s picture,

captioned “Engineering personnel perform maintenance on the F-84G at Matagorda Island”,

from “The Story of the 184th/127th Kansas Air National Guard, 1941-86" (courtesy of Todd Greenberg).



The Matagorda Island Bombing Range was controlled at one time or another by Foster Field, Randolph AFB,

Carswell AFB, Bergstrom AFB, Chennault AFB, and Barksdale AFB.



The runways at Matagorda Island were apparently doubled in length at some point between 1949-64.

Matagorda Island AFB was depicted as an active airfield on the 1964 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Bill Suffa).

It was depicted as having a total of 6 paved runways (the longest being 8,000'),

its own control tower, VOR beacon, and NDB beacon.



"Matagorda Island AF", as depicted on the 1966 Edwards Plateau WAC Chart (courtesy of Robert Brown).



Matagorda Island AFB was deactivated in 1975.



At some point after 1975 the property became a federal wildlife refuge.



In the 1980s & 1990s, Matagorda Island was used as a location for the Tethered Aerostat Radar System.



The earliest photo which has been located of the entire Matagorda airfield was a 1990 USGS aerial view looking southwest.

Note that runway numbers had been painted at some point on Runway 2/20, but then closed-runway X symbols had been added.

Short portions appeared to have been repaved with asphalt at either end of that runway, of which the total length of the paved surface is 10,800'.



It was depicted as an abandoned airfield on 1990s aeronautical charts.

According to Jason Knutson (who visited the Matagorda Island AFB site in 2002),

"The longest runway still has visible markings on it & is in relatively good condition.

The tarmac & taxiways also still exist but have weeds growing everywhere.

There are also foundations remaining from some of the hangars."

Matagorda Peninsula Army Airfield / Matagorda Peninsula Airport /

Matagorda Club Airfield / Pierce Field (72TA), Matagorda Peninsula, TX

28.46 North / 96.29 West (Northeast of Corpus Christi, TX)

A 3/5/43 aerial view depicted over 100 aircraft on the Matagorda Peninsula AAF ramp.



This former military airfield is located along a narrow island on the Gulf of Mexico.

According to Joe Benson, it was built during WW2 to support the Matagorda Bombing Range to the west,

and was a sub-base of Foster AAF.

 

The 1943 San Antonio Sectional Chart (according to Chris Kennedy)

labeled the airfield as "Matagorda Peninsula (Central Fixed Gunnery School)".



A 3/5/43 aerial view depicted Matagorda Peninsula AAF in its original configuration,

with 2 asphalt runways connected by a taxiway.

A large concrete ramp on the east side held an amazing array of over 100 aircraft.

A series of curved roads on the east side had dozens of buildings.



At some point after 1943 the airfield gained 2 more runways, bringing the total up to 5 runways.



The Matagorda Peninsula airfield was closed by the military at some point after between 1943-49,

and reused as a private airfield.

The 1949 San Antonio Sectional Chart depicted it as a civil airfield, "Matagorda Peninsula" (according to Chris Kennedy),

and described it as having a 4,000' hard-surface runway.



It was labeled "Matagorda Club" on the 1964 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Bill Suffa).

It was depicted as a private airfield,

with a total of 5 runways (the longest was a 4,285' asphalt runway).



Matagorda Island was also one of the early NASA considerations for a launch site,

before they settled on Cape Canaveral.



A circa 1981 photo of a Space Services Inc. employee climbing the Percheron rocket launch tower on the Matagorda Peninsula ramp.



After his 1982 retirement from NASA, astronaut Deke Slayton became president of Space Services Inc.,

a Houston-based company which used Matagorda Peninsula as a launch site for their commercial space rockets.



A 9/9/82 photo of the historic Conestoga rocket launch from Matagorda Peninsula -

the world's first privately funded mission to reach space.



No active airfield was listed at the site in the 1982 AOPA Airport Directory.



A 1984 photo by Frank Henderson of his friends in front of their Tiger,

after landing at the abandoned Matagorda Peninsula AAF.

He flew in "to spend the day on the beach.

It turned out to be one of the most enjoyable days of my life.

The airport was still very usable at the time,

although it may take an adventurous spirit to try landing there -

cowpatties & weeds were littering the surface."

He said that they had the beach to themselves - "Blue water, white sand... nice."



The 1989 USGS topo map depicted the “Matagorda Peninsula Airport”

as having a total of 5 paved runways, with a large paved ramp on the east side.

The property adjacent to the east side of the airfield was labeled as the “Matagorda Club”.



As seen in the 1995 USGS aerial photo,

the airfield includes 5 concrete runways, taxiways & a large ramp.



From at least 1998-2002, the airfield has been reused as a private airfield, Pierce Field.

Two runways were still maintained (the longest, 6/24, is 6,000').



A 2003 aerial view by Robert Laird looking northwest at several houses built on stilts over the western edge of the Pierce Field ramp.



Navy flight instructor Michael Strobach reported in 2003,

"I've flown over this field many times, and more than once I've seen Cessnas parked there.

The field looks in very bad shape, so whoever lands there is a true cowboy.

Today, I noticed a new-looking windsock."



A 12/31/08 aerial photo showed the remains of the 5 runways, taxiways & large ramp.



Hector Zuniga overflew Pierce Field in 2009,

and reported, “Poor Pierce field, it seems that most of the runways & taxiways have been taken over by settlers or squatters

as structures that appear to be RVs & trailer homes are spaced out evenly among all of them.

Only the tarmac seems to be clear of them & in good shape, its concrete is nearly ash black with age however.

I saw no buildings in the way of hangars, towers, water towers or other 'military' looking structures left at all.

I could not even make up any of their possible bases or foundations.”



A 2012 photo by James Adams of his Beech Baron at Matagorda / Pierce Field.

James reported, “I landed there late last year. Privately owned but land owners are selling undivided interests in acreage.

The runways are quite overgrown but the main apron is in good shape - which is where most land.”

Matagorda Peninsula Airport (XS09), Matagorda Peninsula, TX

28.54 North / 96.12 West (Northeast of Corpus Christi, TX)

Matagorda Peninsula Airport, as depicted on the 1964 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Bill Suffa).



This airfield is located along a narrow island on the Gulf of Mexico.

Matagorda Peninsula Airport was apparently built at some point between 1949-64,

as it was not depicted at all on a 1943 aerial photo nor on the 1949 San Antonio Sectional Chart (according to Chris Kennedy).

The earliest reference to the field which has been located

is the 1964 San Antonio Sectional Chart (courtesy of Bill Suffa).

It depicted Matagorda Peninsula as a private airfield with a single 3,000' asphalt runway.



The 1980 USGS topo map depicted the field as having a single east/west runway,

labeled simply as “Landing Strip”.



Matagorda Peninsula was listed as a private airfield in the 1982 AOPA Airport Directory (courtesy of Ed Drury),

and it was described as having a single 5,100' asphalt Runway 8/26.



A 1995 USGS aerial view looking northwest showed Matagorda Peninsula Airport

to consist of a single 5,100' asphalt runway & a small ramp area with 2 small buildings.



According to George Horn (a pilot for the state of TX),

Matagorda Peninsula Airport (XS09) has been a private strip

owned by the Cullen family (a wealthy Houston oil family) for many decades.

As a pilot for the state of Texas,

Horn landed at Matagorda Peninsula in the late 1990s during acquisition talks.

It has recently passed into possession of the state of Texas & is a closed wildlife preserve.



Matagorda Peninsula Airport was depicted as an abandoned airfield on 2002 aeronautical charts.



An April 2002 aerial view by Robert Laird looking southwest at Matagorda Peninsula Airport.



An April 2002 photo by Robert Laird of an ultralight after landing at Matagorda Peninsula Airport.



Navy flight instructor Michael Strobach reported in 2003,

"I flew over Matagorda Peninsula Airport. This field looks like it's in very good shape."



A 3/25/13 aerial view looking northwest showed the Matagorda Peninsula Airport to remain intact.
