RNZAF: Wing Commander William Kofoed took off piloting surrendered A6M5 Zero 3844 from Kara Airfield on a short 32 minute flight to Piva Yoke Airfield.

Australian Army: During surrender negotiators, Bonis Airfield was inspected by the Australian Army, 2 Corps to ascertain the suitability for use, but the runway was found to be overgrown and unsuitable for Allied use. Instead, the former runway was used as an assembly area for Japanese Prisoners Of War (POW).
