Haleiwa Fighter Strip in Days of Infamy[]

The Haleiwa Fighter Strip was an American Army Air Corps base until the Japanese arrived in 1941. It was the first air strip to fall to the Japanese, giving their Navy planes a land base to operate from during the invasion of Hawaii.

When the Americans returned in 1943, it was the first airfield to fall to them.
