You start with a few Oscar's which will do the trick against anything but the B-17E. Yes, I've had them shoot down the 17D's, maybe that's because their crews were lousy. As said some AAA will help, but you must bring this with your invasion fleet, which I do. I addition you have a number of small engineer units that contain AS devices (air support to repair A/C). I fly them and the A/C in the day I take the place so that I'll have air support over the base immediately.
In addition you get a number of AV and CS vessels. When carriers are not available you can use the Pete's on these craft to act as a sort of ersatz CAP. Put them in the base hex. They won't shot anything down, but they will disrupt enough to throw his aim off, so to speak. Remember though these must not be put up against any enemy fighters. They will be slaughtered.
