New Mariana Islands air bases In addition to the logistical problems associated with operations from China, the B-29 could only reach a limited part of Japan while flying from Chinese bases. The solution to this problem was to capture the Mariana Islands, which would bring targets such as Tokyo, about 1,500 mi (2,400 km) north of the Marianas within range of B-29 attacks. It was therefore agreed in December 1943 to seize the Marianas. Saipan was invaded by US forces on 15 June 1944, and despite a Japanese naval counterattack which led to the Battle of the Philippine Sea and heavy fighting on land, was secured by 9 July. Operations followed against Guam and Tinian, with all three islands secured by August. Work began at once to construct air bases suitable for the B-29, work beginning even before the end of ground fighting. In all, five major air fields were built, with two on the flat island of Tinian, one on Saipan, and two on Guam. Each was large enough to eventually accommodate a bomb wing consisting o ...

PINOY AVIATORS NEWS: PH, US launch joint exercises near China-claimed waters PUERTO PRINCESA - Thousands of Philippine and US marines on Monday began military exercises close to flashpoints in the South China Sea (West Philippine Sea), where Beijing is engaged in a bitter territorial with its neighbors. The 12-day amphibious landing exercises -- involving about 3,500 US marines and sailors and 1,200 Filipino counterparts -- were officially launched from the western island of Palawan, directly facing the South China Sea. China claims the sea almost in its entirety, and its increasingly assertive efforts to stake its claims have heightened tensions with neighbors including the Philippines, which has conflicting claims to parts of these waters. But Philippine marine spokesman Lieutenant Jerber Anthony Belonio stressed that the location of the opening ceremonies was not linked to the territorial dispute. "This has no relation whatsoever. This is just to show the capabilities of our new marine landing brigade ...

North Korea recently fired a rocket that placed a satellite into orbit, defying existing international sanctions and showcasing the progress of the nuclear-armed totalitarian regime in ballistic-missile technology. The U.S., Japan, South Korea and China criticized the North Korean action, while the Pyongyang government asserted what it said in a statement was a “legitimate” right to launch satellites. China has veto power and may oppose further steps in the Security Council. The North American Aerospace Defense Command said in a statement that it detected the launch at 9:49 a.m. Korea time, after which the first stage fell into the Yellow Sea and the second dropped into the Philippine Sea. The U.S. agency said the missile deployed an object that appeared to achieve orbit, after North Korea’s official news agency said the Unha-3 rocket had successfully sent a satellite into space. The development followed a failed rocket test in April that embarrassed new leader Kim Jong Un, who has been working ...

There's no reason for China to be concerned when Filipino and US troops conduct joint naval exercises later this month near the disputed territories in the West Philippine Sea, the spokesperson for the Philippine Fleet said on Thursday.
Today through 20 June in 1944, American pilots shot down 476 Japanese aircraft in a battle known as “The Marianas Turkey Shoot.” The US lost 130 planes. Navy submarines and aircraft also sank three Japanese carriers. Afterwards, Japanese naval airpower was not a serious threat to US forces in the Pacific. This was known as the Battle of the Philippine Sea.

Following the need of a group or a movement which will touch on sensitive issues (e.g., China's incursions on Philippine seas, Phil. pork barrel/corruption/governance) not normally tackled in the community, the TAPSILOG (FilCan Network for Truth & Justice) was born on June 5, 2014 by some conscientious individuals. Its spokesman is Freddie Bagunu. F Y I. Its first activity is the prayer rally today (June 19, 2014) in front of the China consulate office (Vancouver), from 12 noon to 1:00 p.m., to protest the non-stop incursions of China into the Philippine west seas. In addition, Dr. Jose P. Rizal, national hero of the Philippines, will be honored today on the occasion of his 153rd birthday celebration. The Vietnamese community will join also today's prayer rally. This will be a rain or shine affair.

Maximum sustained winds are at 75kph with gusts of up to 95kph. TS Hagibis is currently moving northward at a slow speed of 5kph.

The Benham Plateau, also known as the Benham Rise, is a seismically active undersea region and extinct volcanic ridge located in the Philippine Sea approximately 250 km (160 mi) east of the northern coastline of Dinapigue, Isabela. Under the Philippine Sea lie a number of basins including the West Philippine Basin (WPB), inside of which is located the Central Basin Fault (CBF).[1] The Benham Plateau is located in the CBF and its basement probably represents a micro-continent.[2] Several scientific surveys have been made on the feature to study its nature and its impact on tectonic subduction, including one about its effects on the 1990 Luzon earthquake. The area is claimed, as part of its continental shelf, by the Philippines, which has lodged a claim with the United Nations Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (UNCLOS) on April 8, 2009 and was approved by the UNCLOS in 2012.[3] Contents [hide] 1 Geological features 2 History 2.1 Philippine claim 2.2 UN Decision 3 References 4 External links ...
