Old Navy Brig and Maintenance Office at Lee Gilmer Airport in Gainesville
The Navy leased the dirt runway in 1943 and built the airport that functioned as a satellite to NAS Atlanta at PDK Airport. It's mission was to train Controllers in (GCA). Ground Controlled Approaches using that new fangled thing called radar. I posted the original admin building and control tower last year but couldn't get this building.
