Building any kind of airfield bigger than a helicopter pad looks to be all but impossible on Aogashima. Although a runway might occupy nearly all of some of the atolls in the South Pacific at least they were flat.

Good thing I never went for that island. Went for Torishima instead......

You can build a size 3 port, I just don't know where you would put it.

While at Phuket we went on a boat tour around the Marine Sanctuary islands. Stopped at two of them where we got into small boats and went via cave into the centre of the island which had a small lagoon. Those were coral/limestone islands which are notoriously riddled with caves, but Aogashima seems to be volcanic, which would mean harder rock. But volcanoes do create lava tubes so if one runs all the way to the sea, the port could be in the mini-cone in the middle of Aogashima!

With volcano activation, Aogashima creates its own ARDs.

I like this thread!! Nicely done. So fascinating to see all of these places, and I've done a bit of searching over the years myself.


This is Brunei. Flew through once and stayed the night on a missed connection. Odd place.

They are laying down the smoke screen in the background. Must be B-24s on a raid from Australia.

Ebon is a forsaken, 0/0/0/0 location in stock. Pacific Gulag of sorts.

Now that 's cool. Hadn't seen that before. Had seen Aogashima, and some others.

Anyone interested in a dive trip to Truk? Looking though this made me realize that's one item on my Itch List to get scratched.

I prefer to stay in hotels that have at least a four star rating. The dives don't clean their bedding well enough!

My dive shop has organized a trip to Chuuk next July.

https://nebula.wsimg.com/4d678c8b445ae0f27148a3265dd68a5e?AccessKeyId=FF1A1E508AB1FF9F834B&disposition=0&alloworigin=1

The trip is currently booked but you can get on the standby list if you want. Most dives are very deep, be prepared. Getting there can also be a challenge.

I spent four days on Guadalcanal some 12 years ago. The thread will have several "village" and open air museums plus lots of pics from the island.

Yeah, getting to Chuuk is proving to be a challenge. I may take you up on that
