Refueling Stop, 1966

Flying from Ca. to Clark Air Base, USAF. Stopped here about 11 PM. All passengers, (maybe two dozen) went to the beach and played with sand crabs. A messhall opened and made sandwiches for the whole flight. No memory of where we slept but the plane took off before daybreak. The sky was beautiful that night.

Johnston Atoll Airport

The airport was shut down in 2005 and the airstrip is not maintained.

The buildings once used are all torn down.

Refueling stop 1957

I seem to remember a beached or sunken Japanese ship partially sticking out of the water just off runway 10 when I landed there. It seems like we just stayed long enough to get fuel and then fly on to Japan. I was young lad then so it is hard to remember. Has anyone else seen it?

Wake Island

I was in the Marine Corps and Stopped at Wake for refueling. As out of the way it is, it is one of the most beautiful places i got to visit while stationed on Okinawa. I would love to visit it again one day.

re: I love wake island

I spent three days there in 1967. It has the most beautiful blue water of shore that I have ever seen. I would like to have stayed under different circumstances.

Closed after WWII

This airfield was closed after World War II, since Sand Island (PMDY), immediately to the west, allowed for a longer runway.
