Residents, aviators and visitors to Wichita Falls are pleased that the dream of returning an airworthy piece of history to the City has been realized. Kickapoo Downtown Airport is now the home of the World War I Call Field Living Museum. The museum honors and memorializes the brave men who trained in Wichita Falls at the World War I Army Air Corp base known as Call Field. The base operated in Wichita Falls from 1917-1918 with hundreds of pilots learning to fly using the Curtiss JN4-D "Jenny."
