In 1940 the City of Dover accepted an offer to build a federally funded airport. In December 1941 the airport became Dover Army Airfield. From anti-submarine patrols in obsolete aircraft to secret rocket testing and fighter pilot training the base flourished until it was closed in 1946. As the Korean War expanded the facility was reactivated and in 1953 it became an airlift base. Today Dover AFB is an indispensable part of our global transportation network, but how it all came about is a fascinating story. Delaware Public Archives, Dover.
