During WWII, the Navy and Army did the impossible. They bulldozed off the top of a mountain on Catalina Island for an airport so that fighter planes could land there in an emergency. It was said to be fog-free (this was top-secret). The takeoff was a short distance on land, then into the air. Just like an aircraft carrier, it was fly or crash. Shown is the first civilian air flight to the "Airport in the Sky," Catalina Island. (United Airline plane at terminal). (June 29)

U.S. Naval Air Station, Roosevelt Field. Roosevelt Field was alongside the Long Beach Naval Station and Shipyard. It was immediately west of the Navy Station on Terminal Island. It was later de-actified and the buildings were used for Married Officers Quarters (M.O.Q.) of the Long Beach Navy. There were also Bachelor Officers Quarters (B.O.Q.).

U.S. Naval Ammunition & Net Depot. Shown are giant piles of anti-submarine floats (spheres) and giant cylinders at the Net Depot. Many people were fearful because they thought the spheres were ocean mines. In reality, the floating steel spheres were made to hold up a net made of cable in the ocean around the breakwater entrances to Long Beach and Los Angeles harbors during WWII. Several Japanese subs tried to penetrate the harbor but were attacked and driven off. A derelict Japanese sub that periodically surfaced in the area was finally sunk off Catalina Island (1948-49)

At Atlantic Blvd. and Bixby Road a crowd gathers to watch a black and white TV broadcast on a 10 or 12-inch screen. (Some people brought stools to stand on to get a better view). Mr. M.E. Mattox had an early radio store which also became the first television store in Long Beach. [1946(?) or 1947]
