Hunter Auxiliary Field
(Rankin Field Auxiliary No. 1)
During World War II, the airport was designated
as Hunter Auxiliary Field (A-1). It was used by the United States
Army Air Forces as an auxiliary training airfield for the flying
school at Rankin Field, California.
It is now farm land and should not be confused for the current
Exeter Aiport immediately to the east of the site of this airfield.
