Airfield Physical Description  (login to add) (1)
Also known as Ngoro or Blimbing after neighbouring villages.
Originally one NE/SW runway of 3000\' approx and a roughly EW runway of 3400\'. Cut form jungle and surrounded by rain trees to camouflage it.
No evidence remains of the strip, but the surrounding road network connecting the runways, revetments and barrack area are still obvious.
