A major US Army Air Force Base, Mareeba housed seven heavy bomber and three fighter squadrons of that Service between July 1942 and May 1943. With the departure of the American units, Mareeba was then used by Nos 5 and 100 Squadrons, No 5 Communication Unit and a variety of RAAF support units, with No 24 Operational Base Unit disbanding in early 1946.
