History

During World War II, the facility was known as Liberal Army Airfield and was used as a United States Army Air Forces Second Air Force B-24 Liberator training base from 1943 to 1945. Newly minted multi-engine graduates were shipped to Liberal to transition to the Liberator, then sent to 1st Phase bases to be joined up with a crew for combat training.

Before April 1944, Liberal was home to a Twin Engine Flying Training Group with four squadrons (60, 63, 1029, 1030), the 527th Base Hq & Air Base Sq, 324th Sub Depot, 444th (later 744th) AAF Band, and 396th Aviation Sq.

Afterwards, these units were merged into the 2425th AAF Base Unit (Pilot School, Specialized, Four Engine)
