Plaine Des Gaiacs
by Nicolas Duprey & Flo Thibeaux

Plaine des Gaiacs Airfield is around 300km north of Noumea, just before the village of Pouembout. Today, no planes use this airfield. We have seen a New Zelander Lockeed Hudson wreck, and a queue of a B-25 Mitchell.

There is also a plane cemetery where there are a lot of plane parts, but it is hard to identified them, we think there are B-25, C-47 or B-17 parts and the rest of a little monoplace plane, perhaps a reconnaissance one. There are hundred of coca cola and beer bottles! We have found a lot of old installations even the toilets! This airfield are very large.

Send you the photos of the toilets and of a big disharge About pdg, we have found some cal 30, 50 and 20mm cartidges cases, there are a lot everywhere around the airfield.
