Port Kyat Lun, Tulagi Combat Area


An anomaly traveler sent this pic of Port Kyat Lun and adjoining Fletcher Field, part of the WW2 experience in the Tulagi area. Port Kyat Lun – Jeogeot Gulf, Kyat Lun (link) is the latest of wartime developments – a port that will soon be able to take on cargo from the freighters that frequent the region.

The photographer, a Waterbank accountant when not on vacation, was part of a b 17 bomb crew, and took the photo as they took off for a mission from Fletcher Field. “The ZSK B17 is so amazing,” he told us, “that most of my pictures are from inside the plane.”
