Southwest Pilots Having Fun
The airfield was named after the real estate agent, William Mines, who arranged for the city to buy the farmland that became the airport. The land was acquired in 1928, the first hangar built in 1929 and the airfield officially opened in 1930. It kept the name until it became Los Angeles Airport in 1941.
Davis-Monthan web page about the field). From the photos, I'd guess that it was at least a flying school...because these two characters posing with a WACO GXE certainly look like an instructor and student!
Any information on the company would be appreciated!
