    Narrative: The following items were moved from the airfield to the SHA:
        	800 ea 14.5mm
    
    The following items were destroyed on the airfield:
	    90 ea BELUGA submunitions
    	    50 ea MK118 submunitions
   	      4 ea 14.5mm rds
   	    20 ea assorted small arms

    This concludes clearance operations for Kuwait International Airport. To
    the best of our knowledge, all munitions on the airfield have been re-
    covered. However, with the amounts of munitions that were found on the
    airbase it is probable that additional items will be recovered as people
    start to inhabit the airbase again. It must be noted that this was a
    surface clearance only. No attempt was-made to perform a subsurface
    clearance of the airfield. However, we did fully investigate all holes of
    entry and recovered subsurface ordnance as we encountered it.
    PROBLEM AREAS: No significant problems were encountered during this
    clearance. Minor problems did occur with spare tires for the hummers. As
    with any clearance where fray is present several spares for each vehicle
    is a must. Also a source of compressed air was a problem. We obtained
    used hummer tires from the Army and changed them out ourselves but the air
    was a continual problem. Units should ensure that 2 1/2 ton trucks used
    for the clearance come with the air hose and air chuck to fill tires.
    OTHER COMMENTS: All personnel who participated directly or indirectly in
    helping to make this clearance a total success are to be congratulated.
   A listing of all ordnance encountered on the airfield is at attachment 1.
