Mabalacat West Airfield Monument
Clark Freeport Zone, Philippines

The first Japanese kamikaze pilots led by Lt. Yukio Seki took off from Mabalacat West Airfield on October 21, 1944. They returned to base after they could not locate any enemy ships.

On October 25, 2004, the monument at Mabalacat West Airfield, sometimes now called Kamikaze West Airfield, was unveiled in a special ceremony attended by both local Filipinos and visitors from Japan.

Daniel Dizon [1], a local historian and artist, argued since the 1960s that Mabalacat should do something to remember the Japanese Kamikaze Special Attack Corps. The first monument in Mabalacat Town to the Kamikaze Corps was erected in 1974 at the former site of Mabalacat East Airfield. However, this monument was buried nearly completely in ash from the 1991 eruption of nearby Mount Pinatubo. In 2000, a wall with the Japanese and Philippine flags was erected at the same site as the original monument at Mabalacat East Airfield. In October 2004, a kamikaze pilot statue was unveiled in front of the wall.
