“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.
