History of our Post

Balboa Fill Landing  Field was renamed in honor of First Lieutenant Frank P. Albrook (Air Service, U.S. Army), who on March 16, 1921, was assigned to the 7th Observation Squadron (under the command of Captain Henry H. 'Hap' Arnold) at France Field. Lieutenant Albrook was responsible for activating and assuming command of the 8th Air Park at the Balboa Fill Landing Field before his untimely death on September 17, 1924, from injuries received in an airplane accident at Chanute Field, Illinois.
