Summary: On 15 February 1935 the Coast Guard established a seaplane facility at Salem, Massachusetts. Air Station Salem was located at Winter Island, an extension of Salem Neck which juts out into Salem Harbor. The aviation facilities consisted of a single hangar, a paved 250 ft parking apron, and two seaplane ramps leading down into the waters of Salem Harbor. Salem was equipped with, what were at the time, state of the art communications and modern repair facilities. Barracks, administrative and dinning facilities and motor pool buildings were also part of the complex. The station was commissioned with a complement of 35 men and two airplanes. Salem Air Station closed in 1970. The Salem and Quonset Point operations moved to Otis Air Force base out on "The Cape" and Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod was established.
