Mabalacat East Airfield - Mabalacat, Pampanga, Luzon, Philippines

Here are some photos of the first Kamikaze Airfield at the Mabalacat East Airfield, located at town of Mabalacat, Pampanga, Luzon, Philippines. The original marker was destroyed during the Mt. Pinatubo eruption of 1991. Now, the marker has been re-erected and a ceremony was held late October, 2009, to remember the first use of the Kamikaze. The Japanese airfield is now a sugar cane field and when harvest time comes, you can still see the outline of the runway.

Some tiny historical inaccuracies which made me giggle a bit:

  • The main characters make mention of the peseta as a currency. The peseta wasn’t introduced until 1869, exactly 350 years after the time the movie is set in.
  • Cortez stated that once they touch land, Tulio and Miguel would be sent to Cuba to work as slaves on sugar cane fields. The cultivation of sugar cane in Cuba began in the 18th century. In the 16th century, the name of Cuba was “Isla Juana”.
  • The movie is set in 16th century Spain, but when Miguel and Tulio are about to jump into the barrels they bet 2 pesetas on it. Pesetas weren’t in circulation until the 19th century.
  • Altivo’s apple can be seeing bouncing off a telescope on Cortez’s ship. The telescope was not invented until the early 1600s in the Netherlands.
  • Tulio mentions how they are now richer than the King of Spain. In 1519, there was no title ‘King of Spain’ The man who ruled Spain, Charles V, was known as the Holy Roman Emperor and ruled Spain as King of Aragon, Castile and Léon. The title 'King of Spain’ was not used until Charles’ son, Philip, became king in 1556.

I’m really excited to share with you a little film that documents the early stages of my songwriting, jam sessions, and collaborations of #aseatatthetable … 3 years ago, I moved into a small house in the middle sugar cane field in New Iberia, La with just my engineers @mixedbyblue and @audio_nino to write the songs that have now become the songs on the album. See the video in full which also follows me to Long Island and New Orleans
