B-24 Liberator Wreckage
Dubodura was primarily a heavy bomber base for B-24 Liberators. Aside from basing many aircraft, repair and overhaul facilities, bomb dumps and revetment covered the area.

Most of the bomber wrecks were scrapped after the war. Despite this, I saw the remains of various B-24 hulks in and around the airfield.

Above is the fuselage section of a one of the liberator wrecks. The nose turret is missing, as are the wings and twin tail.

Below is a B-24 wing and engines. This wing gave the impression of the massive size of this bomber.
