[Control Tower]

Elevation 8 ft

  I don't know how most of you arrived at Sangley, but I remember arriving on an amphibious aircraft from Clark early one December morning in 1958. The first thing I remember seeing was the bare concrete control tower. It dominated the "skyline". Painted on the side of it was a sign which read "U.S. Naval Station Sangley Point, Elevation 8 ft."
