Bomb pit[edit]

The caption for the bomb-pit picture copies the information given in the external link, that Pit #1 was used for Fat Man before being loaded on to the Enola Gay. In fact, of course, it was Little Boy that was carried by Enola Gay – Fat Man was carried by Bockscar. Though "#1" seems to imply the earlier bombing, I think it best to leave details out in the absence of better information. Vilĉjo 17:47, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

Aguijan is part of Saipan Municipality![edit]

YOUR WRONG!! Aguijan is part of Tinian Municipality!!! It's under TINIAN! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 202.88.80.66 (talk) 01:45, 12 October 2008 (UTC)

Acording to USGS Geographic Names Information System Aguijan is part of Saipan Municipality. Aotearoa from Poland 15:57, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Wrong! It doesn't even make geographical sense! Beside, I'd trust CNMI government and local knowledge first, Census Bureau second, and USGS last on political boundaries. USGS doesn't even show up every ten years! HkCaGu 16:50, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

Strategic Importance[edit]

"Tinian was not garrisoned by the Japanese military until the latter stages of World War II, when the Japanese realized its strategic importance as a base for American Boeing B-29 Superfortress bombers." What sense does that sentence make? Did the U.S. military announce the intended use of Tinian before US forces invaded Tinian? Or Japanese military intelligence was so smart it knew exactly which aircraft the US would station there?142.105.41.26 (talk) 00:06, 8 December 2014 (UTC)

You can take an educated guess about what the enemy might plan. On TV yesterday, I saw something about plans to significantly upgrade the US military activities there. The population would prefer Chinese casinos, they said, a development worth monitoring. 101.166.86.118 (talk) 05:50, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
Enemy might be planning? The war is over, and has been for a long time. There would have been plenty of documents about this at the time, and plenty of people who remembered things. The question is what is available now, and what use historians have made of it. A second source for this paragraph would be really useful. Aoeuidhtns (talk) 02:55, 2 October 2016 (UTC)

George Anson's voyage around the world[edit]

George Anson's voyage around the world mentions his stop at Tinian while crossing the Pacific to Macau. This should be mentioned in this article.--DThomsen8 (talk) 20:55, 12 January 2016 (UTC)
