The Japanese were dug in deep and when the bombing stopped, the defenders came out and set up their positions, firing on the incoming landing craft.

Then went back outside watching the aircraft land & just basically killing time with the odd conversation with other tourists & hotel staff [ free transfer to the airport ], like myself & many other passengers we are hoping to depart on time for 9am. Many of us were surprised to be boarding the aircraft at 8:30am, anyway within a few minutes we were all sweating & dripping from perspiration we were informed from the captain that there was a problem with the air-conditioning system in the aircraft, 10 min's later we are all asked to remove ourselves from the aircraft & return to the departure lounge, many apologies from the captain & hope to rectify the problem ASAP. One hour passed then 2 hours & then 3 hours & we were all given our light snacks in the lounge area, food & drinks taken off the aircraft which basically meant we had to starve once we had departed, with the captain & some airport engineers contacting air-pacific back in Nadi the problem was eventually sorted out, the flight departed 3.5 hrs later at 12:30pm, some passengers had missed their connecting flights from Nadi & like myself I had missed my connecting flight returning to Sydney in Australia, we eventually landed in Nadi at 3:30pm, however i have to give credit when it's warranted; Air Pacific kindly arranged accommodation in Nadi for the one night at their expense. The flight duration from Tarawa to Nadi was approximately 3 hours without any further problems. & I reached home on Friday the 08/03/13 at 12:00pm.

A continuous video clip of daily life around this airport runway, witnessing the local activity surrounding the entire airport runway, after a working day for many locals & the end of a school day for the younger locals it appears to be a great meeting place & catching up with all the local gossip & healthy activities, sometimes after a while in filming the daily & evening activity you can easily forget I'm witnessing many people enjoying themselves on a international airport runway without any legal force to remove the locals !!!! of course this only happens when the local sirens go off from the local fire engine & making sure the entire runway is cleared for plane arrivals & departures.
