History

During World War II, the United States Army Air Force 63d Bombardment Squadron, assigned to the Fifth Air Force 43d Bombardment Group, flew B-17 Flying Fortresses from the airfield between 15 June-3 August 1942.[3]

Other USAAF units assigned to Charleville were the 8th and 480th Service Squadron of the 45th Service Group.[4]

Charleville was also the western terminus of the Air Transport Command Pacific Wing (later Division).

The RAAF had a unit at Charleville. No 15 Operational Base Unit provided support services for transiting aircraft, such as refuelling or minor maintenance.
