Wheeler Army Airfield, also known as Wheeler Field and formerly as Wheeler Air Force Base, is a United States Army post located in the City & County of Honolulu and in the Wahiawa District of the Island of O'ahu, Hawaii. It is a U.S. National Historic Landmark for its role in the December 7, 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
Wheeler Field was bombed during the Japaneseinvasion of Hawaii. The airfield was occupied and was repaired by the Japanese occupational forces, and as well stripping anything worth useful from downed American aircraft to be utilized by its technicians. After the islands fell it was handed over to the Imperial Army, who used it for their own planes.
