Located near Cabanatuan. Also known as "Cabantuan Airfield".
Built prewar for the Philippine Army Air Corps (PAAC).
On December 8, 1941 three Martin B-10 bombers of the
Philippine Army Air Corps were based at Maniquis. One of the B-10s was involved in an accident. The
remaining two had mechanical problems and were unable to take
off against the Japanese. The bombers and the airfield were abandoned by the Philippine Army Air Corps during December 1941 after the Japanese landings on Luzon.
Tony Feredo adds:
"I have no document or evidence that it was used by the Japanese. Probably it was but I am not certain as of the moment."
