Orlando Air Base, FL

chapel-orlando air base

“The Post Chapel at Orlando Air Base, located in tropical garden environs is unique in that it is the only chapel in the entire army that has its steeple on the ground and to the side of the chapel. The chapel is so near the end of an airdrome runway that Army planes zoom low over this building as they approach and take off from the flying field, necessitating the strange location of the chapel steeple. Photo by Public Relations Section, Orlando Air Base.” -Postcard description from back of card. (From http://dc.ocls.info/memory/image/post-chapel-orlando-air-base)
