Recently ( while flying a "routine patrol" SBD over Pearl Harbor,) I deviated slightly to fly over my girlfriend's house in Honolulu...& boy was I surprised at what the town apparently looked like in 1941!!! The beautiful beach at wakiki was gone as was the lazily beautiful small city of Honolulu...replaced with a dirty little working post more reminisant of Novosebursk... I thinkI'll be taking my next 48 hour shore leave elsewhere...say Leningrad!

Flying over port moeby gives me the same thing a stock European city. It's kind of annoying.

Never been to Port Morseby but I did look up some photos. So where's all the hills gone? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif
