“The Book” Atop Ascension Island The   United   States   Corp   of   Engineers   constructed   Wideawake   Airfield   in   1942.   It   was   during the   Second   World   War   from   1943   to   1945   that   more   than   25,000   aircraft   of   the   United   States Air   Force   transited   through Ascension   for   transatlantic   flights   including   up   to   4,000   U.S.   armed forces. For   many   of   us Ascension   Island   was   our   home   away   from   home.   If   you   are   ever   in   a   crowd   of ARIA   Alumni   you   may   just   hear   someone   suggest   chartering   a   plane   to   revisit   the   South Atlantic island. I   want   to   thank   Mr.   Geoffrey   Fairhurst,   former   administrator   of Ascension   Island,   for   taking   the time   to   research   and   send   images   of   "The   Book"   located   atop   Green   Mountain   Ascension Island.
