Forgot to add, there were a total of something like 12 NOLFs attached to Livermore NAS. Some others were located in Livermore, Dublin, and Tracy. Camp Parks used to host one of them as well as the old location for the Livermore Municipal Airport. One was as far away as Milpitas. These were practice fields for pilots training for WWII.

I started to put together a Google Earth KMZ file marking the "lost locations" around the Tri-Valley by putting in the locations of these Naval Outlying Fields. I also added the old Hummingbird Haven gliderport in Livermore. I intend to add more locations as I find them...

Here you can download the KMZ file:

You will need Google Earth from Web Link to view this file if you don't have this program already.
