Historic Wendover Airfield⇗
The 384th trained at Historic Wendover Airfield for three months after being formed in December 1942.
In all, 19 bomb groups destined for combat service trained there.
Of these groups, 12 were assigned to the 8th AF in England,
4 were assigned to the 15th AF in Italy,
and the 7th AF (Pacific), 14th AF (CBI), and 20th AF (Pacific) each received one.
When Wendover was chosen by the USAAF as the location for the top secret Manhattan Project flight crew training,
no further training of groups for conventional bombing was done there.
Colonel Paul Tibbets, commanding the 509th Composite Group,
trained his crews for the atomic bomb missions at Wendover.
Wendover is an out-of-the-way location, but it is easy to get to,
being a couple of hours west of Salt Lake City on Interstate 80 at the Utah-Nevada border.
A very active organization - the Historic Wendover Airfield Foundation -
has embarked on an ambitious project to restore much of the airfield.
A new museum has been established in the restored John T. Brinkman Service Club.
The Club houses numerous exhibits related to Historic Wendover Airfield,
as well as having facilities for meetings and banquets.
The organization also holds air shows, typically in September.
