Location
Located to the northeast of Clark Field, to the west of Mabalacat and the highway, situated on a flat field with only crops growing on it.

Construction
Perfect for an airfield, it was cleared as a single runway built by the Americans prior to the war, and used by the Japanese.

Tony Feredo adds:
"Photos taken at Mabalacat West revealed a rivalry of IJN and IJA aircraft together and in some instances, IJA and IJN units were assigned in some bases."

Today
Located inside the Clark Air Base compound. Post war, the area was developed into a bomb dump area by American military, with concrete bomb storage hangers.  Today, the area is abandoned. There is a memorial and tunnel present at the former airfield.
