The airport was given to Mohave County in 1950's. It was named Kingman Airport. Many of the WW II Army barrack foundations still remain. There are approximately five original hangers in use, many have been restored and up-dated, the exterior of the hangers are original. The Flight Control tower is still standing, though not in operation.
During WW II Arizona had many sites that were used for a number of reasons, some for rest or recreation others used as training bases, one such training site was Kingman Airport. During WW II Kingman airport was used as a gunnery training site. There once was a disaster involving a B-25 flying from Yuma on a training mission. It flew below the clouds and crashed into the Mountains. Having visited this site early the remains of the aircraft was visible, engine down in the wash, not too far away a wheel strut. Vandals have since removed these.
