In 1918, approximately 1,000 airmen trained for aerial warfare in a plane such as the one shown here, at the 960-acre Eberts Field near Lonoke (Lonoke County). The U.S. Army’s Aerial Photography Section No. 32 also trained at Eberts Field. World War I ended shortly before the first class graduated. The training school was dismantled after the war, and the site today is nothing more than open fields and a golf course.
