What Links an Auto Proving Ground to a School of International Management?
My Summer 2017 Editor's Column discusses the many Army Airfields the feds built for pilot training during World War II in Arizona. The state's sunny skies made for perfect flying weather.Some of these airfields are still used as military installations. Others have been re-purposed as civilian airports, an airplane storage facility, and - yes - the former Ford Motors Auto Proving Ground in Yucca and the Thunderbird School of International Management at ASU in Glendale.
