The carrier pier was probably the next largest project at Cubi Point, the first being the air strip. Although MCB 11 had little to do with this project, it was considered to be important enough to warrant a page in our cruise book. Beside the carrier pier can be seen the taxiway and parking area for planes leading to the pier. The pier will be able to accommodate two of the largest carriers afloat.
   The aircraft carriers will tie up along the pier and planes can be loaded or unloaded onto the pier. Also damaged planes can be brought into the pier for repairs. The pier will include all facilities to put planes into operating order.
