Aerial view of Tanauan airfield, Leyte, Philippines
|Controlled by||United States Army Air Forces|
The airfield was built by the Americans shortly after landing on Leyte in November 1944. It was used by the 312th Bombardment Group (19 November 1944 – 10 February 1945) and 433d Troop Carrier Group (19 January-31 May 1945).
With the withdrawal of American forces, the airfield was abandoned. There is little or no trace of its existence.
