Here's some information on Presque Isle Airport, sourced from Wikipedia:
During World War II, the federal government appropriated the airport, establishing an air base for planes bound to and from Great Britain. Lane Construction of Hampden, Maine was one of the contractors who worked on upgrading the airport for the military. Floyd E. Brown of Hermon, Maine was one of the foreman and would take airplane rides at the end of the day to gauge his progress against the other foreman. (He would later serve in the US Army as a Staff Sergeant/section chief of the 60mm mortars (C Co., 328th Regimental Combat Team, 26th ID.))

Almost overnight, Presque Isle Army Airfield became a vital air transport installation and the City found itself a busy war center. During the Second World War, Clark Gable was briefly stationed at Presque Isle before being sent to England.

When the United States Air Force closed Presque Isle Air Force Base in 1961, the former Air Force Base was redeveloped. Presque Isle is home the University of Maine at Presque Isle, as well as the Northern Main Technical College.
