Gore Field, 1944
A view of some of the buildings constructed at the Great Falls Municipal Airport 
for the 7TH Ferry Group.  
The Sun River, Missouri River, Anaconda Co. Smelter 
and a portion of the city of Great Falls 
is visible in the background. 
 
The decision to locate the headquarters of the new 
Montana Air National Guard Unit at Great Falls 
in 1947 was based in part on the availability of the facilities at 
Gore Field.
