After the war there were about 200 plus destroyed aircraft here. Most were buried. Today, the former Japanese airfield is now a sugarcane field, part of Hacienda Naga.

David Mason reported in 2000:
"The airfield complex is still there and they're building a new airport runway and passenger terminal for the city of Bocolod. They are in the process of constructing a new airport here. Occasionally they dig up a Japanese aircraft bits."
