Yokosuka Airfield and Tokyo Bay During the American Occupation
While units of the U.S. Third and Fifth Fleet ride at anchor off shore in the tight little harbor, planes of Marine Air Group 31 operate from the field. This field was the Japanese main naval air experimental station and possessed many advanced types of airplanes and facilities. Typical of Japanese terrain development is the cut and fill construction seen here. There are large hangers and shops dug back under the hills. To the left is a boneyard of junked planes, including a few shot up U.S. jobs.
