November 1942: Ready-made metal plates are spread out over cleared ground and interlocked to give a firm surface for US warplanes to use on Guadalcanal. This can be done in under a day and American Airforce engineers and local inhabitants of the Solomon Islands work together to get it done. (Photo by Hulton Archive/Getty Images)
