This Field is Small - Use it All

"The early days of flight testing had humble beginnings at McCook Field. ... In 1927, as the requirements for expanded facilities exceeded the space available at McCook Field (the short 1000 foot runway, with a sign warning pilots 'This Field Is Small -- Use It All,' illustrated McCook's limitations), the Air Corps developed Wright Field as the new location for the 'Material Division.'"
