LUBANG AIRPORT - LUBANG ISLAND
During the Japanese occupation in the Second World War the Japanese conscripted local Philippinos to assist them in building an airstrip in Barangay Tangal, in the Municipality of Lubang
Japanese aircraft on Lubang airstrip were bombed by American warplanes on October 24, 1944. A Japanese battleship in the vicinity of Barrio Vigo was also bombed.
After the Japanese Air power had been destroyed the American lead Allied Forces landed in Tilik on February 28, 1945.
Bing Higgins, who was posted to Gozar Air Station in 1968 by the USAF, wrote in (12 Nov. 09), to say that: when he arrived, the Lubang Municipal Airport consisted of a dirt strip which facilitated a former PAL (Philippines Air Lines) turbo-prop plane to land several times a week, plus a strip for a USAF C-47 to arrive with mail, food and movies for the USAF personnel.
