General

Aerial view of NAS Memphis in the mid-1940s.

Originally constructed in 1942 as Naval Air Station Memphis, the airfield provided pilot training during World War II. During the postwar period of the mid-1940s through the mid-1990s, NAS Memphis hosted numerous locally-based Naval Air Reserve and Marine Air Reserve flying squadrons, as well as a major naval air technical training center (NATTC Millington) that provided the bulk of enlisted aviation speciality training for the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The original NAS Memphis comprised over 3,800 acres.

The 1993 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission report resulted in significant changes to the base's mission and its redesignation in 1995 as Naval Support Activity Memphis. The airfield and flight line proper was turned over to the city of Millington, which is now the Millington Regional Jetport.

In 1998, the name of the remaining naval base (i.e., non-airfield) was changed to the Naval Support Activity Mid-South to better reflect its current mission and the Navy's approach to regionalization. Naval Support Activity Mid-South is one of the largest single employers in the state of Tennessee, with approximately 6000 military, civilian and contractor employees on 1,950 acres. The naval base hosts many tenant organizations, notably the Commander, Navy Personnel Command (NAVPERSCOM) and the Bureau of Naval Personnel (BUPERS).

On December 9, 2008, a Mitsubishi MU-2 crash-landed on runway 4 while passing through the area. The pilot announced that he may have not been able to reach the airport and have to land on U.S. Highway 51. The pilot was taken to a local hospital in stable condition, and the FAA and NTSB are currently investigating the incident.
