George Air Force Base

About an hour and a half drive out of Los Angeles is the former George Air Force Base. It was originally built during World War Two as a pilot training base and during the Korean war it was greatly expanded and remained a major training base for fighter pilots until it was closed in 1993. Today it houses several companies that paint commercial airliners as well as some distribution centers. But a lot of the old base is still standing and in various states of usage.
