Now in ruins, Pyote Army Air Base was nicknamed Rattlesnake Bomber Base because of the prevalence of rattlesnake nests encountered during its construction. WWII bomber pilots were trained her. For a while after the war the Enola Gay, the bomber that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, was hangered here.
