Daugo Island Airfield

Fishermans Airfield (also known as Daugo Island Airfield) is a former World War II airfield near Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea. It was part of a multiple-airfield complex in the Port Moresby area, located offshore of Port Moresby. The island's name is derived from the names of the island's two villages - Dag (on the western tip) and Ugo (eastern tip). It is also known as Fisherman's Island.
The airfield on the island was built by the RAAF c. 1944 as an emergency airfield. It was abandoned and has been disused since the war.
