Regarding my #124*.
As an air base for central Mindanao district, 300 men are being managed by Americans, and the ground is now being leveled.
An under ground hangar and under ground oil tanks are planned; however, the material for this is delayed so that building on this is not progressing as planned.
Already several times a week planes are flying here, and it seems they are expecting large heavy bomber planes too, very soon.
