List of Air Force Plants

Copyright 2003-2007, Scott D. Murdock

6 May 2003 - Initial DRAFT listing
8 Oct 2003 - Added purpose, lat, and lon for AFP #39, #49, and #74.  Added purpose for AFP #64.
15 Jul 2007 - Added purpose and coordinates for AFP #53, corrected county and purpose for AFP #51.


INTRODUCTION

This is an attempt to list all official designations of "Air Force Plant."  At the end of the list, I include a few installations that were NOT designated as Air Force plants, but perhaps should have been, based on their function.  In addition to installation directories and stacks of official orders, I am indebted to Mark Morgan, Michael Binder, and Ron Plante for sharing from their files on this subject.

Air Force plants have served many functions.   When known, I've listed the general purpose of each plant -- but I've not attempted to get into the weeds with every specific product or function.  (I may eventually add the names of contractors who operated these plants for the USAF.)

Many of the plants started their military careers in W.W.II, as government- or contractor-owned defense plants.  Some were purpose-built for their Air Force roles.  A few of the plants later became Air Force bases.  Others are located on or adjacent to Air Force bases or other installations.   A handful of the plants are still active government installations.

So, enjoy the list.  But please view it as a work in progress.  Note the many gaps in my information, and let me know if you are willing to share documentation to fill those gaps.
