Aircraft Maintenance at Craig Field

Engineers perform maintenance on an airplane at Craig Field near Selma, Dallas County, ca. 1942. The field was built during the lead-up to World War II to train cadets to fly single-engine aircraft and named to honor Bruce Kilpatrick Craig, a Selma native and officer of the Infantry Reserve who was killed in a plane crash in 1941.
