History of the Airdrome

Moffet Airdrome was founded in 1930 to serve as the sector headquarters for the Upper New York City Air Defensive Zone.  Named after Admiral William Moffet who was considered by most as the father of airship carriers.  The base served well in it's short tenor as sector HQ, but in 1933 a more modern headquarters was established in Yonkers and Moffet was mostly abandoned.  In 1935 the businessman and socialite John Jacob Astor established a new air wing for the 1st Air Division other wise known as the Broadway Bombers.  In establishing his newly formed wing he had to find a suitable site for construction of a homebase.  Why looking for a suitable construction site someone happened to show him the abandoned Moffet Airdrome.  It was just what he was looking for.  It had large administration buildings and a hanger already built and plenty of room to expand.  Astor started a major expansion of the airdrome constructing Hanger 2,3, and 4 and repairing and expanding Hanger 1 and the administration buildings.  After the first couple of squadrons of aircraft arrived and the unit was transformed into a roving air wing instead of a guardian as it was originally designed to be, Astor managed to pull some weight around and get the 27th Carrier Group permanently assigned to the Air wing.  Witch leaves us to modern day.

Current Status

Moffet Airdrome is currently the home of the 7th Air Wing also called the Astor's Airmen.  The base and the air wing is currently commanded by Vice-Air Marshal Jason "Draco" Kinart.  John Astor, the founder and caretaker of the air wing, can often be found touring his favorite unit.  Although the airdrome is officially owned by the Empire States Armed Forces Astor has managed to get permission to construct his own private Hanger witch will house his private airship Astor's Pride.
 

The Hell's Angels are a long time privateer for the Empire States.  They have recently been given quarters and Hanger space at Moffet Airdrome.  The Angels range far and wide targeting Zeppelins belonging to the Empire's enemies.  There most recent engagement was with a Nation of Hollywood Zep witch the Angels captured with two Bloodhawks still in the zep's hanger bay.  The Angels are mostly equipped with Whittly and Douglas M210 Ravens with only a few captured McDonnell S2b Kestrels for ground attacks.
