On a decommissioned Naval Air Station (San Francisco Bay, USA)
Naval Air Station Alameda was a United States Navy Naval Air Station in Alameda, California, in the San Francisco Bay. It is a location of historic significance, as it was at the Alameda Naval Air Station where, in April 1942, the USS Hornet (CV-8) loaded the 16 B-25 aircrafts that would take part in the Doolittle Raid on Japan (yup, just like in Michael Bay’s movie).
Nowadays, the former landing strips serve a more peaceful purpose: every first Sunday of the month, the Alameda naval base hosts one of the largest flea markets in Northern California: the Alameda Point Antiques Faire. Expect over 800 stalls along miles of aisles packed with furniture, ornaments, paintings, jewelry, vintage clothing, children toys, old books at this flea market. A real treat for the flea market enthusiast and one of the best flea markets in the United States.
