    Seeking AAFTAC & Orlando, Florida Layout

    Jack Durbin Newbie

      I have seen part of a map or layout of the Army Air Force Base at Orlando, Florida showing the layout of the field. It is from sometime in the 1940s, But the view I have seen does not give all the information  It was done by the US Engineer Office in Jacksonville, Florida. I have been told there is a reference to it in the U.S. National Archives but I have not been able to find it. I have also been told the map is not online but might be available by request. Thank you

          Dear Mr. Durbin,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located 9 series of maps that include military reservations during WWII in the Records of the Office of the Chief of Engineers (Record Group 77) that may include the maps you seek. For access to these series, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Cartographic (RDSC) via email at carto@nara.gov.

           

          We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
