The US Navy operated a Naval Air Station in Litchfield Park, Arizona from the WWII era into the late 50's. After WWII, thousands of surplus aircraft were stored at the NAS Litchfield Park. Many of these planes were put back into service to meet the demands of the Korean War. Those that were not put back in service simply sat out in the dry hot climate for many years. A decision was made to close the NAS in the late 50's. The aircraft that remained were either sold off, moved to AMARC, or were smelted on-site.

Today, NAS Litchfield Park is called the Phoenix-Goodyear Airport, and it is located just south of I-10 on the far west side of Phoenix. There is nothing left from the US Navy days. Goodyear still has a large plant located on the airfield.
