It become home to First Air Force. Training began with the P-40F Warhawk, but quickly transitioned to what Millville is most known for: The P-47 Thunderbolt. During the fields' three years existence, thousands of soldiers and civilians served here, with 1,500 pilots receiving advanced training in the P-47 Thunderbolt.
