Left - Adak WWII Quonset Huts. In WWII there were 50,000 troops at Adak. In 1967, 3,000.
Right - An unusually clear day with a view of Adak runway and main Base.
Left - Next stop, Midway Island and Base Ops. Such a small island that we walked
entirely around its perimeter on the beach in one afternoon. For details of the harrowing
flight to midway see www.centercomp.com/cgi-bin/dc3/story?1374.
Right - Navy Monuments at Midway and Albatross (Gooney Birds) and chicks everywhere you look.
Left - CoPilot Dave Dollahite making friends with the very domesticated Gooney.
Right - Remnants of the battle of Midway rotting away in the surf off the end of the runway
where they were bull dozed more than two decades before. The island was like a living
history book. Note radial engine carcass in center of photo.
