Bolling Field

The first military airfield near the United States CapitolCreated by: PICRYLDated: 1917
"The Flying Senators," Senator Frederick Hale of Maine, left, and Senator Hiram Bingham of Connecticut are called the "flying senators" on Capitol Hill because of their frequent use of the airplane to transact government business. This photograph was snapped at Bolling Field Washington, just before the Senators took off for Langley Field, Va. Senator Bingham is an experienced pilot, having seen service with the Army Air Service during the World War
Founded in 1917 as The Flying Field at Anacostia, the Bolling Field was the first military airfield near the United States Capitol. It was renamed Anacostia Experimental Flying Field in June 1918. Throughout the Second World War, Bolling Field served as the aerial gateway to the US capital Washington D.C. After WWII, Bolling Field's property became Naval Air Station Anacostia and a new Air Force base, named Bolling Air Force Base, was constructed just to the south of the field in 1948.

Dr. E. Francis Warren, of Harvard U., believes he will be able to "shoot down" the heaviest clouds and fog by his new invention demonstrated recently at Bolling Field, Wash., by Army fliers. The process uses sand and he states that if enough airplanes are equipped with this device, it will not only be possible to break up clouds and cause rainbut to remove fogs from over both cities and harbors. The picture shows Lt. W. E. Melville pouring sand into the pit. Directly underneath the wing can be seen a nozzle that sprays the sand through the air
