Located on Motu Mute Island in Bora Bora Atoll.
Built by US Navy "Seabees"
and completed in early 1943.
Used by the 7th Air Force briefly during the war.
Robert Rocker adds:
"The 7th Air Force kept a Squadron of P-40's there during the
war on garrison duty along with some US Navy floatplanes so
the Japanese could not invade the island there is a story
of those P-40's shot down an Emily Flying boat."
