Navy Arrived At Guantanamo Bay Cuba To Set Up Aviation Camp  


JANUARY 6--The entire aviation element of the Navy arrived at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and set up the Aviation Camp on Fisherman's Point for its first operations with the Fleet.

The assignment, which included scouting missions and exercises in spotting mines and submerged submarines as part of the fleet maneuvers, served both to demonstrate operational capabilities of the aircraft and to stimulate interest in aviation among fleet personnel, more than a hundred of whom were taken up for flights during the 8-week stay.
