Airport Bunkers

Taking the Japanese airport was one of the first objectives for the Americans in the Battle of Saipan. There are still several Japanese buildings remaining including the Airport Bunkers. These bunkers saw a lot of action. There is a large hole in the side of each bunker from direct hits by the American tanks.

The old Japanese hardstands are now a soccer field.

Tank blast hole in each bunker.

Unknown Japanese pre-war building near the airport bunkers. Could possibly have been a 1930's police station.

Millions of Dollars are lost every Year through Disputes over Bunker Quality & Quantity. Even if the vessel staff boards the bunker tanker to witness the bunker tanker measurements-The vessel staff are not familiar with the correct sampling procedure and the “TRICKS-OF-THE TRADE” which can lead to inflated supply quantity
