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.
