History

It was named in honor of WWI aviator and test pilot Lt Col Frederick Irving Eglin. Since its founding in 1933 Eglin has evolved from a remote bombing and gunnery range in the 1930s (although very little actual bombing was done at the outset) into the military's primary non-nuclear test facility, it now supports a wide variety of multi-service test missions as well as providing a home for many special operations functions.

What became Eglin Air Force Base had its beginnings with the creation in 1933 of the Valparaiso Airport, when an arrowhead-shaped parcel of 137 acres was cleared for use as an airdrome. Two unpaved runways, with a supply house at their intersection, were in use by 1935. Plew, as founder of Eglin Field. On 4 Aug 1937, the installation was renamed Eglin Field in honor of Lt Col Frederick Irving Eglin (1891-1937).
