Miyoshino Airfield is located near the center of Shumshu Island (Shimushu). Also known as "No. 2 Shumshu Airfield".
Built by Japanese.
This airfield based several Army and Navy units including
B5N2 Kate, G3M Nell and Ki-43 Oscars.
Ralph Weitherhorn adds:
"In 2003, on Shimushu looks a bit like an ancient Roman ruin. Nothing above
ground stands, but the outlines of the runway, revetments, gun pits, and hangar
area are all readily identifiable. The area is totally abandoned. Would not be
surprised to find wrecked planes in the area."
