Spring Break Pictures 2

Some sort of rusty gun thing on Chulu Beach, the beach used as an invasion beach by American Marines in July of 1944.
The view of Saipan from the northern most point of Tinian.

Runway Able, one of 4 runways built by the Americans. At 8500 feet long and 200 feet wide, these runways easily accommodated the B29 Super fortree they were built for. In 1945, North Field Tinian was the busiest and biggest airfield in the world.

At the blow hole: Natural phenomenon made by weather and waves carving a cave under the limestone ledge over the years.
