“An abandoned U.S. Air Force base from World War II?” I don’t think so, inasmuch as there was no U.S. Air Force during WWII. It is an abandoned U.S. Army Air Corps base from World War II.

Thanks for the catch! You are correct and the issue has been corrected in the entry.

It would be Army Air Force. The Air Corps had it’s name changed before the start of WW2.

The US Air Force was created in 1947, as this base was not shut down until 1947, this base was a US Air Force base when it was shut down.
