In 1918, more than 2,500 airmen trained for aerial warfare at the 960-acre Eberts Field near Lonoke (Lonoke County). The U.S. Army’s Aerial Photography Section No. 32 also trained there. World War I ended shortly before the first class graduated from Eberts Field. The training school was dismantled after the war, and the site today is nothing more than open fields and a golf course.
