Ponape Harbor on the map. Above the "or" of Harbor, see
Langari Island. That's where the Japanese had their seaplane base.
When I was there in 1970-71, there was still an overgrown hanger
with remnants of a plane inside. Under the "bor" of harbor,
see Takatik Island. Aside-the letter t is pronounced ch, so this
is Chakachak in Ponapean. Before the present day runway was built
on Takatak for Air Micronesia jets and connected to Kolonia by another
causeway, they flew a SA-16 in from Truk. (I will be sending you
a slide of it taking off from Truk in 69-70). It took off on land,
then landed in the harbor, and Air Mike used Langar as their seaplane
base. A wonderful place to have a picnic and swim, using the concrete
seaplane dock to dive off of. I know, I did it!
