Lubbock Army Flying School completed; details scarce

1942 Selection of Lubbock as the site for a second advanced Army Air Corps training center was announced in Washington Sunday.

The other base, officially designated as Lubbock Army Flying School was completed recently 10 miles west of the city and has been operating since under the command of Col. Thomas L. Gilbert.

War department censorship regulations permitted practically no definite details to be revealed in connection with the new school to be erected in Lubbock except that the cost will be "in excess of $5,000,000."

However, the school is to be located at Municipal airport five miles north of the city.
