Creech Air Force Base (“Creech” colloq.) is a United States Air Force (USAF) command and control facility in Clark County, Nevada used “to engage in daily Overseas Contingency Operations …of remotely piloted aircraft systems which fly missions across the globe.” In addition to an airport, the military installation has the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Battlelab, associated aerial warfare ground equipment, and unmanned aerial vehicles of the type used in Afghanistan and Iraq. Creech is the aerial training site for the USAF Thunderbirds and “is one of two emergencies divert airfields” for the Nevada Test and Training Range.

In addition to the airfield, the base includes the “UAV-Logistic and Training Facility”, the Joint Unmanned Aerial Systems Center of Excellence, Silver Flag Alpha Regional Training Center, and other military units/facilities. The base in named in honor of retired US Air Force General Wilbur L. Creech, the former commanding officer of Tactical Air Command (TAC), the predecessor command of the current Air Combat Command (ACC).

After World War I, Nevada and other western inland states were surveyed by Capt. Lowell H. Smith and Sgt. William B. Whitefield for landing sites. The United States Army Air Corps subsequently rented a large room in Reno and used the 1929 civilian airfield near Las Vegas (named “McCarren Field” c. 1935) for 1930s training flights. A 1939 “western site board” reconnaissance was conducted near Tonopah for a practice range and in October 1940, Maj. David Schlatter surveyed the southwest United States for a military airfield (Executive Order 8578[18] transferred a “60 × 90 mile area at Tonopah to the War Department on 29 October 1940”.)Congressional appropriations of 19 November 1941 for the Commissioner of Public Roads to build “21 flight strips” along highways for “bombing ranges or for other specialized training” included inland airstrips. “Initially a “tent city” military training camp”, construction of “Indian Springs Airport” permanent facilities began in March 1942, “and by February 1943 the camp was used as a divert field and as a base for air-to-air gunnery training.
