NAS Glynco

This photo shows the main hanger for NAS Glynco and the control tower and OPS building just off to the right.

The control tower and OPS building as it appeared in 1970 and below that, as it appeared in 2003. The tower was demolished in 2005 to make way for a new passenger terminal building for what's now known as Brunswick Golden Isles Airport.

I was a T-33 plane captain and later transit crew leader March 1969 to Nov. 1970. I lived on Jekyll with my new bride( still married) and worked part time at the Phillips 66 gas station on the Island. Best memories was flying backseat in the Shooting Star. Great duty.

Was a dependent on that base '60 to '71. It's were I learned what Toyland was and went to Altama elementary school which the Navy built and insisted be integrated : ). Lived on St. Simons a couple years in the middle of that period. Was a good place and time to be a kid.

I attended ATC-A school there mid March 65 to 2 July 65 as a Marine. Classes were held in the old WWI blimp hangers. Marines had one barracks at the end of the company road by the athletic field. I understand the building became the office for the FBI offices when the historic Navy base became FLECO...Federal law Enforcement Command

I attended Air Traffic Control A School there in December 1971 to March 1972. Headed overseas to NAS Agana Guam./ 1972 to 1974. The food at Glynco was terrific and the base was great. We played a lot of football between the barracks. GO Navy Beat Army.....
