Shortly after receiving Federal Recognition in November 1946, the 199th Fighter Squadron and its support units moved to Area 65 on then-Hickam Field. The circled area in the photograph above shows the Hawaii Air National Guard area on Kamakahi Road The two large hangers remain in service today.

The 199th Fighter Squadron moved to its current location, Building 3400, on Harbor Drive in the early 1960s.
