Felker Army Airfield: The story behind Fort Eustis' 'hornet's nest'
Felker Army Airfield at Fort Eustis, Va., is located along the westernmost edge of the installation, nestled along the shore of the James River, seen in the background of this aerial photograph. The airfield's unique placement makes it ideal for use by Navy helicopter squadrons based out of nearby Norfolk and Virginia Beach in training new pilots, as the southside Hampton Roads installations do not allow outlying fields for rotary-wing training.
