Would there be a list of airfields used by the Armee de l'Air in Indochina 1945-1954?

Congratulations on pulling together such a large amount of useful data from original sources.
My main interest is in tabulating airfield location co-ordinates for mapping purposes.
In this regard, there still seem to be problems with the database. When I do a search by "Island Group", the tabulated results often seem to have latitude and longitude transposed. This seems to be because the table uses the standard convention of latitude followed by longitude. However, many of the individual airfield entries have longitude followed by latitude. In addition the search results for airfield groups do not show E/W or N/S data.
Most of this can be sorted by logical changes but there are still a few ambiguous points. Sumatra presents a particular problem because it lies at a diagonal across the equator. An "Island" search gives all locations as North of the Equator (yellow dots on the attached map). A check on the individual entries shows all of them listed as South of the Equator (red dots on the map). Again, I think most of the ambiguities can be sorted out logically but we are still left with some uncertainties, especially in central Sumatra.
I have used Microsoft Excel to sort things as far as possible. The workbook is too large to attach, but I have pasted a test data plot into the attached Word 97 document.
I will help out with this problem where I can, but it looks as though a lot of data need checking back against the source documents. I hope also to be able soon to fill in some gaps in the database.

Hi guys,

So I hadn't received notification for quite a while that there had been any new members that had joined.  So, basically I hadn't checked in for a while.

Well the forum software was set wrong and wasn't sending notifications.  After going through about 1000 new members and eliminating all the spammers we probably have another dozen members.  I have also setup the spammer prevention stuff the way we have it at j-aircraft. 

So, new members will get approved much quicker and will be able to post on the forums.

Sorry for any problems this may have caused.  I'm sure it has slowed progress quite a bit.

Ok, time to.....get this project moving a tad as "I" need info.

I'm going to start adding to the various base lists what little info I have.  In kind I'll start resizing and cleaning up the numerous photos I've run accross and adding them to the lists.

In kind I've asked a few other folks to come help out....They having just recently done some extensive research on the "Slot" Solomons chain, and should have lots of info to toss into the mix.......Conversely and what lit a fire under my backside, they asked me to pass along what I know of New Guinea and New Britain for their next project being worked on as we speak (these are WWII flight simulation maps they're trying to get as accurate as possible).   So would hope as they contribute what they have, those here who have info and time can pass it back some as then it will be a win-win for all.

Give me a couple days and I'll start getting some items posted.

Hi Tony,

Yes it is in new Guinea. Berry airstrip (12 mile drome) was one of 7 or 8 airfields surrounding Port Moresby, on the south coast of New Guinea.

This link to 'Pacificwrecks' website probably has most useful info. you could search also on 12 mile airfield or airstrip or aerodrome etc.

While doing some research for a project I am working on, I came across an airfield called Berry Field.  It is presumably in Papua, New Guinea. 

On 4 April 1943, Bell P-39K # 42-4347 crashed at Berry Field (APO 929).  The airplane was assigned to the 40th FS/35th FG.  The airplane was cleared from Berry Field for a combat escort mission to Wau and return. 

Where was Berry Field?  Any help greatly appreciated. 

US Army Air Forces
Aircraft Accident Microfilm
Call # 46186, April 4, 1943, Accident # 507.
