Along north coast' Iryan Jaya (Indonesia)

Flying to Jayapura, this island with some remaining of an airbase hidden in the jungle, if any Pbaser know about this place, please send message to unveil the mistery...
Finally I found it, using Google Map : Pulau Owi, South East of Pulau Biak (Indonesia).
This was an WWII airfield built in 1944, ordered by General MacArthur. It was used untill September 1945, then was abandonned.
