Roesch Photography: Abandonment: George Air Force Base Housing
George Air Force Base, which sat just northwest of Victorville, California, was first commissioned in 1941 as a flight training field for World War II pilots. While many different aircraft were assigned to the base over the years, George was best known for the F-4's that were stationed there from 1965 until 1992. My experiences at George Air Force Base were as a child.

Roesch Photography: On Location: George Air Force Base, Victorville, California - Part 1
Early this morning I visited old George Air Force Base near Victorville, California. It's now called Southern California Logistics Airport, as the base closed down in December of 1992 as part of the Base Realignment and Closure commission following the Cold War. What is interesting about this location is that the old military housing and some other buildings from the base are completely abandoned and most of them are in ruins.

Avoiding Regret: Photo Essay: George Air Force Base, Abandoned & Consumed
Abandoned military bases aren't uncommon in Southern California, though most of the ones I've encountered are slated for some kind of adaptive reuse, or are completely closed off. The closed George Air Force Base in Victorville, CA, near Route 66 and the Mojave River, on the way to Vegas, is neither. Despite its designation as a superfund site (because of ground contamination from toxic and radioactive materials like jet fuel, metals and other contaminants), it is abandoned, neglected, and becoming consumed by nature. Officially closed in 1992 at the end of the Cold War, though also used as a filming location through 2000... ...at first, the base doesn't look so bad. Parts of it are still maintained, and even somewhat manicured, with a few surrounding businesses open, like a church and a children's playground and community center. But past the front gate, a security kiosk which is no longer manned... ...you catch a glimpse of the apocalypse. Empty barracks seem to stretch for miles across the huge property. Scraggly trees tower over the low homes... ...while some of the heartier, more robust ones just didn't make it... ...and are laid to rest where they once stood. Much of the housing is burned out, soot-stained window frames peering out like sets of black eyes... ...their barricades broken, boards never mounted or at some point removed. And then there are the tumbleweeds. MY GOD, THE TUMBLEWEEDS. Even at the hospital... ...the tumbleweeds are taking over. The footprint of this air force base is huge and, by my calculations, not really walkable... ...so I only managed to take a cursory drive around the plot, snapping as many quick photos I could get, sometimes leaving the car running and not even parking. To be honest, that place spooked the hell out of me. Usually when I visit some derelict site full of dilapidated buildings, I fantasize about the glory that once was, with an endless curiosity as to what lies inside those buildings, and what they might one day become. At George Air Force Base, for some reason I was terrified.

George Air Force Base - a set on Flickr
Closed in the early 90s, this huge mojave desert AFB was mostly turned over to private industry. The airport has been converted into an international cargo facility and airliner storage yard. Surrounding the base is an enormous housing tract containing hunderds of houses and apartment buildings, all abandoned and very run down. Today the development serves mainly as a wargames and tactical exercises area. The place is filled with fortified "compounds", bunkers and machine gun nests surrounded by sandbags and barbed wire. This set is comprised of 2 shoots, 5 years apart. The day work was shot September 2006, sneaking the car thru the fence for a quick drive through. Digital, Canon 20D. The night work was shot in March 2001 on a night where I had permission to shoot there. Shot on (outdated) 160T film. Sadly, much of what I shot that night was ruined by the lab and every image was badly scratched requiring lots of photoshop reconstruction.
