Palikir Airfield is located at Palikir on Ponape Island in Ponape State in the Federated States of Micronesia. Also known as "Airfield Number 2".
Built by the Japanese Navy, under the command
of Captain Kitawaga who also oversaw the defense. Once completed,
it was never used operationally as it was bombed as soon as it was completed.
During the 1980s, the Federated States of Micronesia capital buildings for legislation, congress, leader's offices and the president's office were built at Palikir Airfield.
The government building area is referred to as the "FSM Capital", no one
lives here, it is offices only.
