Deming Army Air Field - Deming, New Mexico
Activated 15 November 1942 - September, 1946
The Bombardier School at the Deming Army Air Field was established in 1942 and closed up in September, 1946.  Conducted bombardier training for USAAF Gulf Coast Training Center (later Central Flying Command). The first class of bombardiers graduated on March 6, 1943.  In the next three years an estimated 12,000 cadets passed through the Deming school. The bombardier trainer used was the Beech AT-11 Kansan.

Assigned to Second Air Force 16th Bombardment Training Wing on 31 December 1944. Conducted B-29 Superfortress group bombardment training until the end of World War II, when the training program at Deming wound down, finally coming to an end and inactivated 18 December 1945. Airfield was closed on 31 January 1946. Eventually discharged to the War Assets Administration (WAA) and sold in September, 1946.  When Deming Army Air Field closed, the facility became the Deming Municipal Airport.  Today Deming Municipal Airport is a city-owned public-use airport located two nautical miles (3.7 km) southeast of the central business district of Deming, a city in Luna County, New Mexico, United States. Located about one hundred miles West from El Paso, TX on I-10.  As of 2005, some of the structures still stand, including three hangars.  The civilian operation has mostly moved to the North side of the field, with the South side becoming somewhat of a ghost town. <Link>


Deming was a sub-base of Biggs .  WASP flew AT-6's, B-25's, B-26's, and P-47's.

1102 WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots) were stationed at 120 air bases and flew 60 million miles in every type military aircraft in the Army Air Force inventory, from the fastest fighters to the heaviest bombers. They towed targets for air-to-air gunnery and air-to-ground anti-aircraft practice, ferried aircraft, were instrument instructors for male pilots, flew weather, night tracking, simulated strafing and radar navigation missions, transported personnel and cargo and flew drones. They flew every type mission that any Army Air Force pilot flew except combat  missions.
