Clark Air Force Base

February 22, 2012 by staff 

Clark Air Force Base, Clark Air Base is a former United States Air Force base on Luzon Island in the Philippines, located 3 miles west of Angeles City, about 40 miles northwest of Metro Manila. Clark Air Base was an American military facility from 1903 to 1991. The base covered 14.3 square miles (37 km²) with a military reservation extending north that covered another 230 square miles (596 km²).

The base was a stronghold of the combined Filipino and American forces during the end of World War II, and until 1975, it was a backbone of logistical support during the Vietnam War. Following the departure of American forces in 1991, the base eventually became the site of Diosdado Macapagal International Airport, the Clark Freeport Zone and the Air Force City of the Philippine Air Force.
