It may look a bit old and tired but not US, it's certainly functioning.

Sorry, it's lack of sleep....

Sorry, not Guam.

Wake Island was the closest, but not close.

Guam is closer.

Not Okinawa, Port Moresby or Palau & still not Guam

This airfield was originally built by the French & 'improved' by the Japanese.

I have it on good authority that the challenge aerodrome might be Can Tho AAF, South Vietnam. Photo taken in 1965. ?
