Response to Re: Mysterious automatic cannon


Picked up a set of the "Impact" picture books. One of them had an oblique pic of Langoan which showed the lake and the (3x!) seaplane bases on Lake Tondano as well...allowed me to plot them all exactly. I have several aerial pics of Sidate, which allowed me to locate it. Mapanget, as you point out, is a "no brainer".

Another good source for period maps of the NEI is the Royal Tropical Institute;

The Pacific War Airfields Project an excellent resource, but there's about 30 airfields/seaplane bases in the Celebes that aren't shown. The ones that are usually have pretty vague locations. I'm trying to identify them all, plot them, collect period pics, data, and recent sat pics. Why, I don't know...
