This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile33135/Remaining-Wooden-Hangar-of-Hart-Field.htm>Remaining Wooden Hangar of Hart Field</a></b><br><br>This former airfield had an extremely short life in its original role as a military airfield. According to Army Corps of Engineers documents,<br />
the Navy acquired 220 acres by lease for Hart Outlying Field in early 1942.<br />
<br />
The Naval Air Advanced Training Command developed the site<br />
and used it to support flight training operations in the Jacksonville area.Only nine months later, in November 1942, the Navy terminated the lease &amp; returned the land to the owners. After the Navy left, the field was apparently reused as a civilian airport for several years. The April 1944 US Army/Navy Directory of Airfields described Hart Field as having a 3,100' unpaved runway.<br />
<br />
Hart Field was evidently abandoned at some point between 1945-56, as it was no longer depicted at all on the 1956 Jacksonville Sectional Chart.<br /><br /><img src=http://www.gearthhacks.com/showimage.php?image=112807/154440hart.jpg>
