The basement level children’s ward in the abandoned hospital at the former George Air Force Base has a series of cartoon murals on the walls. George AFB is located in the city of Victorville in the Mojave Desert, and was decommissioned in 1992. Renamed the Southern California Logistics Airport, the site has been used to film a number Hollywood movies, and also has an impressive boneyard.┬áSome of the old base housing has been used by the Army and Marines for urban warfare training. The hospital building interior and some of the surrounding buildings show considerable evidence of paintball use.
