Nielson Field

Nielson Field (121.02E 14.55N) was an airfield located just east of Manila in the Philippines. When war broke out, the airfield was headquarters of Far East Air Force and 5 Interceptor Command, but no aircraft were yet based here. 27 Light Bomber Squadron had been assigned to the field, but only the aircrew had arrived; their A-24 dive bombers were still at sea and would be diverted to Australia. The area was garrisoned by 57 Regiment of the Philippine Division.
