US Naval Air Station Port Lyautey, Morocco


La base militaire française a Port Lyautey fut capturée et utilisée par
les forces américaines durant les années de la Deuxième Guerre Mondiale et ensuite largement développée pour en faire une base militaire aérienne très importante de la SAC , base américaine de l'Otan .


Carte:



USS Dallas DD-199




After the invasion and capture of Port Lyautey, an american aircraft photographed the base which showed the French gun emplacements, sunken ships in the Sebou and
the beaches where the invasion forces came ashore. That photograph is
shown below.

VQ-2 was commissoned on 1 September 1955 as Electronic Countermeasurres Squadron Two (ECMRON Two). Originally home ported at the U.S. Naval Air Station, Port Lyautey, Morocco.

This photograph shows yours truly with the original Seabee sign, in 1957, at the US Naval Construction Battalion Center (CBC), Davisville, RI. That base, like NAS Port Lyautey has been decommissioned. The sign read, "Home Of Atlantic Seabees".

Captain Dudley above, NAS Port Lyautey Base Commander in the 1947 - 1948 time frame, addressing his command after inspection.



The following historical news article, by Philip Ewing of the Navy Times, was submitted by Pat Weil, a Seabee who was one of the last four Naval personnel to serve at Port Lyautey. The article relates the actions of the USS Dallas, the Destroyer that captured an airstrip.

The Chief in the photograph is a Chief Shipserviceman whose last name was Edwards. He was an aviation pilot (AP). The bluejacket is unidentified. They were hitching a ride on a VR-24aircraft to Tangier.

The four following photographs of P4M 1Q 124372 were taken on 11/27/53 following a “wheels up” landing at Port Lyautey. The aircraft was flown to Norfolk and later returned to service. Tragically, the aircraft was destroyed in a crash about 1957.












Seabees move in their cranes to begin salvage operations in the photograph above and below.



The photograph following is of the P4M’s, in formation, was taken during a ceremonial base “flyover”, probably in 1954.

Aerial view of the Port Lyautey Control Tower and building.




P2V on flight line with ship on the Sebou River background. The squadron that this aircraft belonged to was Patrol Squadron 5 (VP-5) out of NAS Jacksonville, Florida. They were more than likely doing a six month deployment according to Jack Malone, VP-23 1953/1955 who saw this photo on 1/26/05 and e-mailed the information.



The following photographs were contributed by Dean Miner, former PHA3, USN who was stationed at Port Lyautey from early 1957 until late 1958, where he was assigned to the Photo Lab. In that capacity, he took the aerial and aircraft photographs which follow.




Helicopter (Helo) landing at Port Lyautey. Many of the photographs Dean Miner took, were taken from this aircraft.

Base Photo Lab personnel 1957 - 1958. Dean Miner is in the rear row, third from the left. Seated in the front row from left to tight are, Ens. Skiff, Lt. Rutledge and
Chief DeMoss. After Dean Miner left Port Lyautey, he received a report
that Chief DeMoss had been killed in a P4M crash while hitching a ride
back to the states. If anyone can confirm this, it would be greatly
appreciated.
