USS Midway at NAS Cubi Point, P.I. October 1958. Attack Squadron VA-65 AD's in foreground.
The
Midway class carriers were the last to have a streamlined look when viewed from the side
and she always photographed well. What a beautiful ship to serve on.
NAS Cubi Point, P.I. construction began in 1951. The base was established in July of 1956 with
some work continuing into 1958. The base is no longer a United States possession being
disestablished in October of 1992 as the US Navy abandoned its bases in the Philippines. I was
stationed there in 1959-1960 after I left the
Midway and it was a welcome sight to see my old
ship pull into Subic Bay.
