This is an Aerial Picture of the island of IE Shima.  

The lower left of this picture was filled in using a clone tool and therefore is not accurate.
When you look very close at this map, you can see a little P-47 Thunderbolt
located on each one of these squares.  I was not able to determine this fact but
after talking to some of the WW2 vets, I was told that each one of these squares
was surrounded by a mound of dirt.  This mound was used to prevent nearby explosions
from damaging the aircraft.  If you know more about this, please let me know.
