Located near the south of Halalo on Wallis Island (Uvea).
Built by US Navy Seabees built this single runway
5,000' x 200' with a coral surface, completed by late in 1942. A
catapult and arresting gear was setup near the fighter strip
by late September, and ready by October 10th, but the airfield
was opened on schedule so the gear was never used. Taxiways,
revetments for 18 fighters and a hanger were also built.
Disused since the war.
