Yeah, this seems silly to post, but I’ve gotten so many comments from people about my “misnaming” of the base. I know between the name “Sunnyvale Air Force Station” and “Onizuka Air Station” there were at least two other names: Air Force Base and Air Force Station.
This gentleman’s picture (shamelessly pilfered from FB) clearly shows a time when the base was listed as an “Air Force Base.” The time period is not wholly relevant to this post (er, the mid-1980s? 😉 but I wanted to show some evidentiary proof.
As you all know, I’m all about the documentation.
