Former Naval Auxillary Landing Field Crows Landing

Former Naval Auxillary Landing Field Crows Landing




Base Summary

Base Property and Historical Use
NASA Crows Landing Flight Facility was commissioned in May 1943 as Naval Auxiliary Landing Field (NALF), Crows Landing. The former NALF has served primarily as an auxiliary air field for operations from Naval Air Station (NAS) Moffett Field and other Navy facilities in the general area, as well as serving other federal and state agencies, including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Ames Research Center, located at Moffett Field. NALF Crows Landing was retained as a federal facility for use by NASA in July 1994, and renamed as the NASA Crows Landing Flight Facility.
Closure date, planned reuses, parcels transferred
The former NALF Crows Landing is located in Stanislaus County, California, approximately 80 miles southeast of San Francisco. It covers approximately 1,520 acres in the northwestern part of the San Joaquin Valley between the towns of Patterson and Crows Landing. Much of the facility property and most of the surrounding area is used for agriculture. In October 1999, NASA was authorized by legislative act of the 106th Congress of the United States of America to transfer the facility to Stanislaus County. A majority of the property was conveyed from NASA to the Stanislaus County in September of 2004 for unrestricted use.
Remaining disposal work
All property at the former NALF Crows Landing has been transferred. The Navy is currently conducting environmental work on what is referred to as the "administrative area groundwater plume". Once this site is closed, all environmental actions at Crows Landing will be complete.
