Key West Nas /Boca Chica Field/ Airport:
Worked there (1952-1955) in the tower as air traffic controller. Highway 1 went through the middle of the base then. It can still be seen in the map. Had 5 or 6 blimps then. Located between runways 31 & 25. Watched the transition from radial engines to jets. Used to request the jets to make a low pass down the runway when traffic was light. One woke everybody in the barracks across the road one Sunday morning.
