Naval Air Facility Midway
NAVAL AIR STATION MIDWAY ISLAND, also known as NAS MIDWAY, NAVAL AIR FACILITY MIDWAY, and NAF MIDWAY (former ICAO PMDY), was a U.S. Naval Air Station in the Midway Atoll , the northernmost group of the Hawaiian archipelago . It was in operation from 1941 to 1993, and played an important role in trans-Pacific aviation during those years. Through its lifetime, the facility was variously designated as a Naval Air Station, a Naval Air Facility, and a naval base. It was finally closed on 1 October 1993. Midway Atoll consists of two small islets, Sand Island and Eastern Island, surrounded by a coral reef. Most of each islet is taken up by airfields. The islands were discovered in 1859, and placed under Navy control by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1903. They gained importance in the mid-1930s as a seaplane stop for the Pan American Airways Clipper planes. A Navy presence then began building up, and NAVAL AIR STATION MIDWAY ISLANDS was established on Eastern Island in August 1941
