BLAST SHELTERS FOR SUPPLIES-OPEN SQUARE and RECTANGLULAR
AKYAB AERODROME
The blast warn have been made on exactly the same principles as those forming aircraft shelters, and a platform has been made against the back wall with a ramp inside. On one side of the ramp are areas roofed with flat matting, on which fuel drums are stacked. It appears that trucks could be backed up to the platform and drums rolled down the ramp. The capacity of the storage unit is estimated at about 700 drums, or approximately 30,000 gallons of P.O.L.

MINGALADON AERODROME (1) and (2) Four stores shelters built in a rubber plantation. This photograph was taken when the foliage was at its thinnest. Compare the photograph below showing the same site with the trees now covered with leaves. No trace of the shelters can be seen. This type shelter probably contains fuel or explosives.

BURMA 
STEREO OF RECTANGULAR STORES SHELTER. Such shelters are probably for fuel or explosive stores. There is also a smaller shelter containing a small storage shack, (probably for explosives).
