Hanscom Air Force Base - Bedford, MA

Hanscom Air Force Base/Hanscom Field site covers approximately 1,120 acres in a light industrial area of eastern Massachusetts. The site occupies land in the Towns of Bedford, Concord, Lexington, and Lincoln. The Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant and Raytheon research facility are located due north of Hanscom Air Force Base/Hanscom Field. In 1942, the military began using a public airfield at the site that had been built the previous year. In 1952, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts transferred 396 acres and leased 641 acres of the land to the Air Force. The Commonwealth retained the remaining 83 acres for its own use. Military flight operations ceased in 1973 and in August 1974, the airfield reverted to state control and was renamed L.G. Hanscom Field. It is currently operated by the Massachusetts Port Authority (MASSPORT) as a civilian airport. The primary mission of Hanscom AFB, on the 396 acres owned by the Air Force, is to support the Electronic Systems Center of the Air Force Material Command.
