    I am surprised that no one answered this question.
    The Island featured highly in US Military folk lore last century.

    It's not Manhattan Island either Footy. Good try though.

    A lot of people have looked at it and it looks like I have caught you all.

    It's the secondary airstrip on Wake Island that runs north and south.

    Rising sea levels have changed things since the War.

    Hey Airborne look at your map and then the photo again. They don't match up. We had this identical picture posted back on 09/28 by Grampz in the personal gallery. It's actually Amata Kabua International Airport on Majuro Atoll in the Marshall Islands or so the thread determined.

    No Doug it's Wake believe it or not.

    Here it is taken from the same direction. Look at the square bay at the top left.

    Remember it is taken with a telephoto lense and secondly that the rising sea levels have wiped out a lot of the land each side of the strip.
