Call Field was one of only 5 airbases in the state of Texas during World War I. The airbase was located on either side of present day Call Field Road in southwest Wichita Falls. Its dirt runways were located in what is now the University Park Subdivision. Call Field was closed and dismantled in the early 1920s. It laid the groundwork, however, for establishing Wichita Falls as America’s premier city for training of its military pilots and support personnel. The museum maintains a restored Curtiss JN4 "Jenny" aircraft, used to train pilots in World War I. It flies the first Saturday of the month, weather permitting.
