Henderson Field – Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands – November 15, 1943

NOTE: Carney Field from which American Army Air Force and Navy B-24/PB4yY-1 (Liberators) operated, located about 5 miles east of Henderson Field, had been constructed on a large grassy and marshy field. As soon as the war was over it was forgotten and promptly returned to its natural state. Henderson Field, meanwhile, assumed the designation of Henderson Airport serving the capital, Honiara, of the newly independent (1978) sovereign republic, Solomon Islands.
