During Day 2, the plane that was transporting the nuclear bomb was set to take off from this airfield. Omar met there with Marie Warner, who arrived shortly after 7:00pm. They then finished preparing the bomb.
After Jack Bauer got the location of the nuclear bomb from Syed Ali, he and his team set out to find it and found the dead members of Coral Snake, several terrorists, and Marie Warner. After taking Marie into custody and extracting information about the bomb's whereabouts, CTU learned that the bomb was somewhere on site. CTU found the bomb, and after determining that it could not be defused, Jack decided to fly a plane from the airfield into the middle of the Mojave Desert to detonate it in a safe place.
